When word gets out that film maker Bryan Singer is getting involved in a project; chances are that there will be good things to come. Singer who has worked as a producer on films like "Valkyrie" and "Superman Returns," has set his gaze on a re-make of the classic 80's film "Excalibur" according to a report by Variety. The story will involve the timeless classics attributed to the Excalibur story; everything from the Knights of the Round Table, the magical magician Merlin, and the epic search for the Holy Grail in order to save King Arthur's life.
The film had originally been directed by Jason Doorman back in 1981 and starred Nigel Terry as Arthur alongside Helen Mirren as Morgana and Liam Neeson as Sir Gawain. The re-make of the classic film will be produced by Singer alongside Julie Yorn (Bride Wars, Max Payne). The producer is still presently looking for the film's screenwriter. Additionally, Singer has been linked to the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie which has obtained a first script draft by O.C. creator Jason Schwatrtz.
What do you think of a re-make of the classic film, Excalibur? Do you think they could make it as good as the first film? Are you tired of all the movie re-makes?
