Remember it was reported that Idris Elba was to play a mentor character who teaches King Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s six-movie opus (here)?
Yeah, well, that’s not happening anymore it seems.
Variety is reporting that Elba is now gone from the movie. But it seems that, on the flip side, Jude Law has joined the production as the so far unnamed big bad.
Law has, of course, worked with Ritchie on the two Sherlock Holmes movies.
This means that confirmed so far is Charlie Hunnam as Arthur, Law as the villain and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Lady Guinevere.
King Arthur is set to arrive on July 22, 2016
