Guy Ritchie’s Camelot saga Knights Of The Roundtable looks set to add another big name to its growing ensemble, with Jude Law in negotiations to join the production.
According to Variety, Law is circling the role of the new film’s chief villain, although the identity of said bad guy has yet to be disclosed…
Warner has big plans for the film, which is expected to be the first in a potential six-film franchise. At this stage it is unclear whether Law’s role will be restricted to the first film, or whether he will recur throughout the series.
Should he sign on the dotted line, Law will line up opposite Charlie Hunnam’s King Arthur, while Astrid Berges-Frisbey has also signed on to play Guinevere.
Directed by Ritchie, Knights Of The Roundtable will open in the UK on 22 July 2016.
