Daniel Pemberton is reteaming with director Guy Ritchie on the upcoming fantasy adventure King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law and Eric Bana. The movie is a new take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne. Ritchie has also written the screenplay with Lionel Wigram (Sherlock Holmes) and Joby Harold (Awake). They are also producing the project with Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, Constantine, Hancock), Tory Tunnell (Underground) and Steve Clark-Hall (The Winter Guest). Pemberton has previously collaborated with Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch) on last year’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will be released on March 24, 2017 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Pemberton’s recent projects also include the French/Belgian drama From the Land of the Moon directed by Nicole Garcia and starring Marion Cotillard. The movie premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and was picked up by IFC Films/Sundance Selects for a domestic release later this year.
