Laurence Dunmore is set to direct “Mortal Armor: The Legend of Galahad,” a coming-of-age take on Sir Galahad’s quest for the Holy Grail.

Seven Arts Pictures is financing the film, with production slated to begin next summer in the U.K. Gale Anne Hurd produces. Joel Gross wrote the script.

Dunmore most recently directed Johnny Depp starrer “The Libertine.” New film is a co-production of Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures and Peter Hoffman’s Seven Arts.

“Laurence’s vision for the film is modern in its approach yet steeped in the timelessness of this compelling classic,” said Hurd, who is working on “Thieves of Baghdad,” “The Incredible Hulk” and “Punisher 2.”
