They are also producing the project with Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful MindConstantineHancock), Tory Tunnell (Underground) and Steve Clark-Hall (The Winter Guest). Pemberton has previously collaborated with Ritchie (Sherlock HolmesSnatch) 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.

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.

    So glad more new voices are stepping into the ring. Don’t mind if Pemberton ended up scoring the third Sherlock Holmes whenever it lands.

  2. Thomas says:

    The trailer looks ABSOLUTELY ATROCIOUS. No hope for a decent film, or score.

  3. Adam Ardrey says:

    Is it just a coincidence that this film is released just after the historical Arthur has been conclusively identified as Arthur Mac Aedan of Scotland? The stone that Arthur, Arthur Mac Aedan, really took a sword from is still there to be seen at Dunadd, Argyll. No magic involved… or CGI.
