As is now the way of things, Disney is continuing to remake their movies as life-action adventures and the most recent one to get the green light is the 1963 classic The Sword In The Stone.
But here’s the kicker; Bryan Cogman, a writer-producer on Game of Thrones, has been offered the writing gig. Now, there’s a tantalising prospect…
The story is, of course, of King Arthur as a young boy and his claiming of the sword in the stone while being trained by Merlin the magician… we can certainly see the Game of Thrones connection.
Cogman was nominated for WGA Awards four times for his work on Thrones.
We’re certainly more excited for this than we should be and hope that perhaps some of that GoT magic will carry across. With less head-crushing and prostitutes.
