Warner Bros. studios has closed a deal to remake the 1981 fantasy film, “Excalibur” which tells the story of the famous King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The original is where movie stars like Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart and Gabriel Byrne were first known as actors.
Bryan Singer, is set to produce the new version of “Excalibur”, and he also could possibly direct the film as well. Singer is also set to direct the remake of “Battlestar Galactica”. The article also says that Bryan Singer’s next directed film will be titled, “Jack the Giant Killer”.
Hmmmmmm…well looks like this will be a return for Patrick Stewart for the big screen ’cause I can definitely see him reprising his awesome role of King Leondegrance. Maybe Liam Neeson and Gabriel Byrne will also rejoin?
“Excalibur” was a really great movie though, the original.
They’re gonna bring back Patrick Stewart for the remake, I’ll betcha. It’ll be nice to see Patrick back on the big screen, he hasn’t been on the big screen since “X-Men 3: The Last Stand” released back in 2006. Over the years of his hiatus from Hollywood, he’s been doing Broadway theatre plays.
