Akiva Goldsman is producing

Guy Ritchie is in talks to direct an untitled King Arthur pic for Warner Bros.

Joby Harold penned the script and will produce along with Akiva Goldsmans and his producing partner Lionel Wigram. Harold developed and conceived the idea with a plan to do six films set in the universe.

Plot details are being kept under wraps.

Warners had previously tried getting an Arthur project off the ground titled “Arthur and Lancelot” with Kit Harington and Joel Kinniman to play Arthur and Lancelot but the plug was pulled when the budget could not be trimmed.

The CAA and Anonymous Content-repped Ritchie just wrapped production on “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
