Bryan Singer is about to stick his sword inâ€¦.. er, a stone.
The â€œX-Menâ€ and â€œSuperman Returnsâ€ director has inked a deal to produce and possibly direct a remake of the 1981 gem â€œExcaliburâ€. The project will reunite Singer with Warner, with whom he made the â€œSupermanâ€ reboot.
The news that Singer may direct â€œExcalibur 2.0â€ comes as the filmmaker gets serious about making the New Line-Legendary co-production â€œJack the Giant Killerâ€ his next directing effort, according to sources. Singer also recently signed to direct a big-screen revival of TV fave â€œBattlestar Galacticaâ€. And if he isnâ€™t busy enough already, the filmmaker is, according to the trade, circling â€œX Men : The First Classâ€ â€“ a prequel to his sensational â€œX-Menâ€ (But I wonâ€™t believe heâ€™s truly interested in returning to the franchise until I hear it from his, de Santoâ€™s, or Jackmanâ€™s mouth).
â€œExcaliburâ€ is the quintessential myth-of-King-Arthur film, complete with the enchanted sword, the Knights of the Round Table, Merlyn the wizard and the quest for the Holy Grail to save Arthurâ€™s life. The original film was directed by John Boorman and adapted from the Thomas Malory book by Rospo Pallenberg and Boorman.Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren were among the cast of the flick.
