Guy Ritchie could be the man to bring the Arthurian legend to the big-screen.
Warner Bros are in talks with British director Guy Ritchie to helm a retelling of the Arthurian legend across six movies. The series has been created by Joby Harold who has written the script for the first movie. He's probably best known for adapting Frank Miller's Ronin for the studio as well as writing Tom Cruise's forthcoming movie Edge of Tomorrow.
Guy Ritchie Could Be Directing SIX Arthur Movies for Warner Bros
According to Mike Fleming Jr at Deadline.com, Richie and his partner Lionel Wigram previously developed a version of the King Arthur saga based on a script by Trainspotting writer John Hodge but it eventually ran out of stream.
Guy Ritchie is the bookies' favourite to helm the new James Bond movie.
MGM say it will announce the director of the new James Bond movie in the near future, but confirmed the film is some three years away, at least. We already know that it will not be Sam Mendes behind the camera, after he passed at the opportunity to concentrate on his theatre work. The British filmmaker was responsible for the last movie, Skyfall, the most successful film in the history of UK film.
"We are very excited about the franchise, we look forward to announcing a director soon," said MGM chairman and chief executive officer Gary Barber in a conference call with investors. "We are currently developing the screenplay and working with our partners. We look forward to developing the script soon and signing a director. We are hoping within the next three years it will be released." It was a massive year for MGM, which took $1.1 billion at the box office mainly thanks to Skyfall and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. A huge turnaround when considering the studio was languishing in insolvency just a couple of years ago, resulting in the four year gap between 2008's Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. Mr Barber will have all but banked on Mendes returning to the director's seat for Bond 24 - given the success of the last movie - though it's back to the drawing board. "[Mendes] did an amazing job on Skyfall," he said "We are very thankful for the work that he did."

Tom Cruise could play the lead in Guy Ritchie's new movie for Warner Brothers.
Tom Cruise is in early talks to play in the lead in Guy Ritchie's forthcoming movie 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E' based on the original TV series starring Robert Vaughan and David McCallum as two agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. Warner Bros has wanted to make the project for years, originally with George Clooney in the lead and Steven Soderbergh behind the camera.
According to Deadline.com, Clooney dropped out because of surgery on his beck and back, while Soderbergh left soon after. The studio soon turned to Ritchie - who helmed the Sherlock Holmes movies - and his producing partner Lionel Wigram. It would be the latest high profile role for Cruise, who will star in another Mission: Impossible movie developed by Christopher McQuarrie as well as another Jack Reacher movie. The first film based on Lee Child's crime novels grossed more than $215 million worldwide.
Warner Bros began quiet talks with Cruise for The Man From U.N.C.L.E after he completed All You Need Is Kill with director Doug Liman. Though the film is yet to be released, the studio's eagerness to sign up Cruise again suggest it's pretty impressive. He next stars in the futuristic sci-fi movie Oblivion, which hits theaters on April 19, 2013.

David Beckham has numerous promotional campaigns with various companies but none of them raise the heartrates of women across the nation more than his underwear line with H&M. Becks has uploaded some photos from his latest shoot onto Facebook. Some people are questioning: Is this Beckham's sexiest ad ever?
"I'm excited about the new H&M campaign directed by Guy Ritchie... the campaign will launch in early Feb'." He said, via Facebook. In many respects Guy Ritchie seems a truly odd choice to direct a 'sexy' ad campaign. While Snatch is a hugely enjoyable film, it's about as far from 'sexy' as any film can get - Jason Statham's stilted dialogue entirely detracts from his looks. However, as the Mirror reminds us, Ritchie 'was the man who brought us Sienna Miller in suspenders". There's hope yet.
Beckham has modelled underwear before, along with his wife, for Armani in a memorable black and white campaign. This ad will see him wearing khaki pants and a black vest running through the gardens of Beverly Hills, showing off his tattoos and athletic physique. As the Sun reports, Guy said "For me this felt more than a campaign - it was like directing a short film." Adding that Becks was "the perfect leading man."
Congratulations to Guy Ritchie and his model fiancée Jacqui Ashley after they celebrated the arrival of their second child! The couple already have a child, their son Rafael was born in September of last year, but he will now have a sister to play with after it was revealed that a little girl arrived at a private hospital in London.
A source for the pair told the Daily Mail “We can confirm that Guy and Jacqui are the proud parents of a new baby girl. Mother and baby are doing well.” Another told The Sun “They are both utterly delighted at the birth. The fact they now have a girl is an added bonus — Guy always wanted a boy and a girl.”
Although these are the first children for Ashley, Ritchie is becoming a father for the fourth time, having had 11 year-old Rocco and six year-old adopted son David from his previous marriage to Madonna. The news caps a whirlwind few weeks for the couple; it was just last month at director Ritchie decided that he wanted to be a husband again and asked Ashley for her hand in marriage.
Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley are engaged to be married, it has emerged, after a source confirmed the news to US Weekly.
The 44-year-old British director, who was famously once married to Madonna, is engaged to his 30-year-old long-term partner, who is expecting their second child. Ainsley revealed her growing bump, and the baby news, at the July premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, and recently, she flashed her diamond ring during a dinner date on Sunday at Madeo restaurant in Los Angeles. The American mag confirmed the news, which was patently obvious to some already. Richie has directed some British classics, such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Swept Away, Revolver, RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes. He has been dating Jacqui, who hails from Southend in Essex, since April 2010, and with a second baby on the way, the couple have decided to start planning their nuptials.
On 15 December 2008, it was announced by Madonna's spokeswoman that the singer had agreed to a divorce settlement with Ritchie, the terms of which granted him between £50million and £60million. Their high profile split came after 8 years of marriage, in which time they had two children: Rocco, and an adopted son, David. The pair reached an amicable arrangement for the custody of the pair. "I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive," Ritchie said.

In 1892, the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead; his death is ruled as suicide, according to Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lestrade. But Sherlock Holmes knows that this isn't true: all the evidence suggests that the Crown Prince was murdered, by one Professor Moriarty, whose genius is matched only by Holmes'.
British popstar Robbie Williams has cancelled writing sessions with his long-time lyrical partner Guy Ritchie after it emerged that Guy has been working with Robbie's former band mates.
Chambers, who was behind some of Robbie's biggest hits including ANGELS, had recently reunited with the singer after going their separate ways several years ago.
However, the Sun reports that the pair's scheduled Los Angeles song-writing sessions have been cancelled after they "didn't work out".
A source claims Guy's upcoming collaboration with Take That members GARY BARLOW and Mark Owen was the real problem, added the newspaper.
"He never mentioned it to Robbie. Rob heard Gary was in LA working and found out it was with Guy. He wasn't best pleased when he heard," continued the source.
Chambers, Owen and Barlow are thought to be part of a 12-strong writing team for a new ITV show BRITANNIA HIGH which follows the lives of youngsters at a fictional performing arts school.
Barlow will pen songs for the students to sing throughout the series.
BRITANNIA HIGH will also utilise the talents of STRICTLY COME DANCING judge ARLENE PHILLIPS and theatre veteran DAVID IAN.
