EW has released the cover for their upcoming issue, which features our first official look at Charlie Hunnam as the title monarch in Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur.
Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Round Table (formerly King Arthur) has added Eric Bana to its cast. According to a report today from Variety, the Deliver Us From Evil star will play Uther Pendragon, the father of Charlie Hunnam’s once and future king. He joins a cast that also includes Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Guinevere with Jude Law still in talks to play the film’s antagonist. Djimon Hounsou’s was previously said to have been cast as a Merlin-like figure, but his name is mysteriously absent from the trade.
Principle casting on Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur appears to be nearly complete today as Variety reports that Djimon Hounsou has signed on to play the story’s Merlin-equivalent opposite Charlie Hunnam’s Arthur, Astrid Berges-Frisbey’s Guinevere and (not quite confirmed) Jude Law’s unnamed villain.
