Guy Ritchie Creates a New King Arthur

Guy Ritchie’s new film based on the legend of King Arthur has commenced filming. Details about the new film are somewhat sparse, although an official plot synapsis has been released. Based on what we are learning, a few changes are being made to the classic tale. In a way, the project is being modernized. Purists who love the original version of King Arthur might not be thrilled with any changes nut, sometimes, revisions and changes are the only things that get major studios, directors, and stars interested in a project.

A question among fans of great cinema is “Will the new film be as good as the John Borman classic Excalibur?” No one can answer that question honestly. According to CrunchBase, we have yet to see the movie so it is impossible to judge the quality of what is being filmed. Granted, it is safe to say anyone hoping to top the amazing work of the 1981 film has to truly deliver an outstanding project. Excalibur is widely considered on all-time classic. Perhaps making changes in the creation of theKing Arthur film helps the new version stand out and not come across as a rehash of the Borman classic.

One very positive thing about Ritchie’s new film is its going to be part of a series. The full tale of King Arthur will be told and that is something no one had been able to do before.
