Good knights, gird your loins and steady your steeds! Hollywood has just announced that it's to take another cinematic bash at the Arthurian legend. In the past, attempts at transferring the tale of the Knights of the Round Table to the big screen has served up everything from the excerable First Knight to the superior Excalibur. Happily Warner Bros.' choice of scriptwriter, Kenneth Lonergan, shows rare sensitivity. Lonergan, who wrote and directed the Oscar-nominated You Can Count on Me, will be reworking the novel 'The Once and Future King' by author TH White for this film. White's work has already been adapted once for cinema, for Disney's 1963 animated tale The Sword In The Stone. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter today that Lonergan is also interested in taking directorial duties on the movie once the script is finished.
