Thankfully, fans of the director, the upcoming film, and Charlie Hunnam will get a glimpse of Hunnam’s King Arthur as the actor recently graced the covers of Entertainment Weekly. Read on to learn more about this brand new take on King Arthur.
The Guy Ritchie helmed epic fantasy adventure, “The Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur” is currently in full swing as they have already begun to shoot the movie with “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam, who portrays the titular character of England’s legendary king. Thankfully, fans of Hunnam and Ritchie will not have to wait until the film is released in the summer of 2016 to get a glimpse of Hunnam’s latest project, as Entertainment Weekly managed to go on the set of the film, and released several pictures of the “Pacific Rim” star in costume, and holding the legendary sword, Excalibur. These pictures were taken in conjunction with the fact that Hunnam himself will be gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly soon.
It was also revealed that this King Arthur is quite different from what others are used to. Guy Ritchie told Entertainment Weekly that he didn’t want Arthur to be a one note good guy, as that trope has been used before, and doesn’t make for an interesting story.
According to the article, this Arthur is more “street wise” than other iterations of the legendary character, and Hunnam himself describes Arthur as a “street kid…survivor”, and a “hustler”.
It was also teased that the film will have major fantasy elements in it, including monsters and giant snakes.
