Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur Delayed To 2017

December 23rd, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



In another case of delayed movies, King Arthur, helmed by Guy Ritchie, has been pushed back to 2017. Originally, it was coming out July 22nd, to battle against Star Trek and Ice Age, it appears this time slot will benefit it. Guy Ritchie notes how he’s trying to make his version of King Arthur different than the others:

“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” director Guy Ritchie previously told EW. “The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”

“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” Hunnam said of his version of the character. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
