Hopefully 37-year-old Hunnam and model Poppy Delevingne, 31, who plays his mother Igraine, fare better in the movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, 48. When his evil usurping uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) discovers that the lad is alive and back on the scene, he plots to have him killed asap - but Arthur and his band of not-so-merry men have other plans in store.
Warner Bros.'s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword debuts in theaters this weekend with a highly recognizable plot, a well-known director, and a handful of big-name stars.
I suppose the first 15 are the two separate prequel movies that never got made.
"I would love to do a "Game of Thrones" cameo, they offered me a cameo on that show a little while ago but I was shooting something else so I wasn't able to do it but maybe in the future, who knows", Hunnam said.
You can catch Charlie Hunnam slaying people this weekend as King Arthur in the movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
He told the Press Association: "I would recruit Santa Claus, Elon Musk (the chief executive of Tesla and SpaceX), Conor McGregor (the UFC champion) and Guy Ritchie".
King Arthur actor Charlie Hunnam says he would "love" to do a Game of Thrones cameo. Ritchie is said to be signed on for a six-film deal that involves the "Arthur" series, so I'm holding out hope that some of these characters will show up later, but if this installment is any indication on the quality of the planned series, I'll believe a multiple film deal when I see a sequel.
He added: "The sword bending bit was all b*******, I just got cut".
"Snatched" surprised analysts by beating "King Arthur" on the charts. I'm not super fresh on my King Arthur lore, but I'm pretty sure I don't remember him having a street gang, mouthing off at cops, or training as a slow motion boxer. Because this, surely, will be exactly what we get with Guy Ritchie's next project: the live-action Aladdin. Author George R.R. Martin set out to deliberately subvert the Camelot story, presenting Bran Stark as a King Arthur-type hero whose life is drastically changed by tragedy.
