Warren Ellis scripting Arthurian epic

Anything Arthurian is epic, right? Details are slim, but Authority scribe Warren Ellis dropped word on his blog that he is currently writing a treatment for an untitled Arthurian project its producers are referring to as Excalibur. (It does not appear to be a remake of the 1981 film.)

It’s for Hollywood Gang, who co-produced 300 and previously optioned Ellis’s Ocean.

    I'd rather hoped the 'epic' genre would remain in hibernation a little while longer – and with 'King Arthur' still relatively fresh in audience's minds, I wonder how this Arthurian foray is planning on being different. Steam punk Arthur? It is Ellis, after all.

    I didn't think King Arthur was fresh in anybody's minds.…

    Anyway, Ellis did a realistic, “accurate” Robin Hood comic not long ago; I wouldn't expect him to put any bullshit twists on things just for the sake of being “different.” Making a GOOD movie is different enough for most audiences.
