July 22nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Luther and Pacific Rim star Idris Elda is heading to the Court of King Arthur it seems…

The Wrap are reporting that the actor will play Bedivere in Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Round Table. Elba worked with Ritchie on RocknRolla previously.

The movie is rumoured to be the first in a proposed six movie-long story and Elba is in talks for the role of Bedivere, an older Knight who is “Arthur’s father’s right-hand man who takes it upon himself to train the young warrior for battle as he learns his true destiny.”

The script is by Joby Harold who will produce with his Safehouse Pictures partner Tory Tunnell,  Akiva Goldsman and Lionel Wigram.

The movie is currently scheduled to come out on July 22nd, 2016.

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….
