Should Charlie Hunnam want the part, the “Sons of Anarchy” star could play royalty in Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow’s upcoming medieval pic.
Deadline reports that Hunnam is director Guy Ritchie’s first choice for the role of King Arthur in the film which has Idris Elba attached to star and Elizabeth Olsen as a likely female lead.
Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney also reportedly read for the part of King Arthur.
Elba will play a Merlin-like character who trains and mentors Arthur. At this stage that’s about all we know of the plot with the deets being kept under wraps.
Joby Harold penned the script. He will also produce with Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell.
The film has been slated to open on Jully 22, 2016.
