Director Guy Ritchie has announced that production for his take on the King Arthur legend, dubbed Knights Of The Round Table, has begun! To showcase this, he has posted the image above.

Ritchie is hoping to reimagine the classic story, and if it succeeds, he also hopes to make five more films in this world.

UPDATE: The official synopsis for the movie reads:

“The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King”.

Make of it what you will…

The movie is set to release July 22nd, 2016.
