Djimon Hounsou to play Arthur’s mentor in Knights of the Round Table movies?

November 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments


Remember we reported that Idris Elba was set to star in the Knights of the Round Table movie as King Arthur’s mentor – presumably Merlin – (here)? And then he left (here)? Well, it looks like Elba’s replacement may be in place...

Well it seems that Djimon Hounsou is in talks for the role at Warner Bros.

Guy Ritchie is directing and Charlie Hunnam will play Arthur while Astrid Berges-Frisbey is Guinevere and, as we reported earlier, Jude Law may well be the villain (here).

As it stands the movie is planned as the beginning of a six movie franchise.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
