"Pacific Rim" Star Charlie Hunnam May Star in "King Arthur"

Posted: August 28th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Pacific Rim" Star Charlie Hunnam May Star in "King Arthur"Submit Comment
Warner Bros has been working on its "King Arthur" film for years with lots of directors coming and going. But now things are moving forward under the direction of Guy Ritchie (Snatch).

Variety just learned that Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, "Sons of Anarchy"), Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) recently read for the lead role. It turns out that Hunnam is Ritchie's top choice.

If Hunnam takes the offer, he'll join a cast that also includes his "Pacific Rim" co-star Idris Elba, who's attached to play Arthur's mentor, and Elizabeth Olsen, who's the frontrunner for the female lead.

"King Arthur" is set to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2016.

Well, it makes sense between a Welsh and a Canadian, only an Englishman would be the obvious choice.

Great, another King Arthur movie no one wants to see starring the guy who ruined Pac Rim. Not not just burn the production money instead?

lol, you know you have a turd actor on your hands when he beats Cardboard Man and Jai f*cking Courtney. LMAO! Didn't even read that sh*t the first pass. Really. What a competition! Between three actors none of whom have a LICK of talent. And what, directed by Guy Ritchie? lol. Dude should be setting up for a third Sherlock now that that name is hot. But no, he's making another f*cking movie about a character no one givers a sh*t about.

Bomb.

If Hunnam was sooo bad then why was he for so long in Sons of Anarchy?

Besides, Guy Ritchie is a top director and he did pretty good so far so I'll trust his decision.

Previous actors in the role of King Arthur:

Richard Harris
Sean Connery
Clive Owen
Graham Chapman

All of which did so notably. Owen’s version was a dumb movie but he at least had the macho bravado to make his Arthur work while Chapman was of course hilarious playing it halfway straight amidst the Python silliness. Hell, even Nigel Terry from the 1981 Excalibur pulled his role off with a certain gawky, impetuous, verve.

Compare any one of the above with...f*cking Hunnam, Courtney and Cavil. Three utterly bland, personality-bankrupt actors. sh*t, might as well throw Sam Worthington into the running while they’re at it. Also, Guy Ritchie?

*Cannon throws up hands and walks away*

Did they ever mention that King Arthur had a mentor in Le Morte d'Arthur ? It appears that Idris is taking on the Azeem-style role like Freeman did in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
