INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Kit Harington, Jon Snow in HBO’s Game of Thrones, is trading one sword for another.
Heat Vision reports the 24-year-old actor has been cast as the future King Arthur in Warner Bros.’ Arthur & Lancelot, joining The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman in David Dobkin’s take on the legendary heroes.
The film depicts Arthur as an illegitimate son raised by a poor knight in a village who’ll grow up to be the ruler of England. Lancelot, on the other hand, is a rebellious noble with a distrust of government. Guinevere will play only a minor role in the film, but will be featured more prominently in potential sequels.
Harington, who also stars as the illegitimate son of a noble in Game of Thrones, will make his big-screen debut next year in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
