Is Charlie Hunnam playing King Arthur in the upcoming King Arthur film directed by Guy Ritchie? Charlie Hunnam is at the top of guy Richie’s list to star as King Arthur. Before you say anything, I know what you’re thinking, here we go again with Charlie Hunnam taking an epic role on the big screen.
Yes we got excited before thinking Hunnam was going to take an epic movie role on. If you recall he was the front runner for the role of Billionaire Christian Grey, in the screenplay ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. Based on the New York Times Bestseller ‘Fifty Shaded of Grey’ Hunnam passed playing the Billionaire onscreen after signing onto the roll. There is a great chance for Charlie Hunnam playing King Arthur.
His persona has been defined on the epic Television FX original series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ screen as a badass who runs “ish”. Maybe you already know that. Yes Christian Grey is a stud who runs “ish”, but King Arthur is undeniably more of a badass.
Guy Ritchie is in the processing of putting the deal together with Warner Bros. It’s also been said that Idris Elba is in the running to play Merlin. This wouldn’t be Elba’s first magestic role in a blockbuster. Elba plays the gatekeeper in the Marvel hits Thor and ‘Thor 2 Dark World’. Charlie Hunnam playing King Arthur and Idris Elba playing Merling would make excellent onscreen chemistry.
