Arthurian YARM: Bryan Singer closes deal to remake Excalibur…

Oh I hope they do this well! This is a fave of ours…Why this script? Why not pick up rights to Marion Zimmer Bradley? or how about the Crystal Cave trilogy by Mary Stewart? Bryan Singer is just on fire, b/w this, and the new X-Men etc he is a busy busy man…

SciFiWire:

Bryan Singer has closed a deal to produce and potentially direct a remake of the 1981 fantasy flick Excalibur for Warner Brothers, Variety reported. Excalibur is the quintessential myth-of-King-Arthur film, complete with the enchanted sword, the Knights of the Round Table, Merlin the wizard and the quest for the Holy Grail to save Arthur’s life.

The original film was directed by John Boorman and adapted from the Thomas Malory book by Rospo Pallenberg and Boorman. WB and Legendary Pictures labored for months to pull together the rights to the film, which Singer will produce with Julie Yorn. ..

….Boorman’s film featured such stars as Helen Mirren (who played the evil Morgana) and Liam Neeson (Sir Gawain), as well as Gabriel Byrne and Patrick Stewart. WB had some of the rights as a library title; the rest were secured from Boorman….
