Ritchie, Hodge at Warners table

Director, writer combo for King Arthur saga

Warner Bros. is launching a King Arthur project with “Sherlock Holmes” helmer Guy Ritchie attached to direct and “Trainspotting” scribe John Hodge scripting for Atlas Entertainment and Hollywood Gang.

Producers are Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari, Atlas’ Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Hollywood Gang’s Craig J. Flores exec producing.

Hodge is working on the script with Ritchie. Project aims to be a re-imagining of the legend of Arthur, believed to have been a 6th century king who defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Key source material will be Thomas Mallory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur,” published in 1485 as a compilation of French and English tales.

Jon Berg and Ollie Madden are overseeing for Warner Bros.

Hollywood Gang and Atlas are also teamed on a futuristic Robin Hood project for WB.

Warner Bros. attached Ritchie last fall to direct “Lobo,” the live-action adaptation of the DC Comics drama about an alien bounty hunter, before “Sherlock Holmes” became a hit with worldwide grosses of $470 million. Ritchie also directed “Rocknrolla” and is attached to “The Siege of Malta” and “The Gamekeeper.”

Nunnari’s a producer on “War of Gods” with Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment and Relativity topper Ryan Kavanaugh. Nunnari and Canton partnered on 2007’s “300” for Warner Bros.

Roven is developing a “Gilligan’s Island” feature for Warner Bros. (Daily Variety, March 3).

Hodge’s credits include “The Seeker,” “A Life Less Ordinary” and “The Beach.”

Ritchie’s repped by CAA. Hodge is repped by WME.
