As we await the arrival of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. this August (the first trailer doesn't look half bad), director Guy Ritchie is already in production on his next film, the medieval action drama Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur. Taking the title role is "Sons of Anarchy" and Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam, and we get a glimpse at the actor in the role as Ritchie has just posted a photo from the set of the film, showing off a set in the middle of the woods. No sign of any of the other cast members yet, but we're bound to get a look at them later this year since the film is already slated for release next summer. Look!
Here's a first look at Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur from Guy Ritchie's Twitter:
