Warner Bros Hot For ‘Arthur & Lancelot’

When Deadline broke news last month that Warner Bros has paid $2 million to acquire the David Dobkin spec script Arthur & Lancelot in a bidding war that involved Universal and Fox, insiders said the project would be fast-tracked. That was an understatement. The studio has dated the movie for a March 15, 2013 release. It’s a $90 million budget contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale that Dobkin will direct and produce, with Lionel Wigram with Jeff Kleeman exec producing. Dobkin’s about to open the Universal comedy The Change-Up with Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds. The deal essentially squashed several other sword and the stone pics that Warner Bros was developing. That included Bryan Singer’s remake of the 1981 John Boorman pic Excalibur, and the version that Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie had with Trainspotting scribe John Hodge.

Arthur and Lancelot Set Up at Warner Bros.
David Dobkin writing and directing Arthur and Lancelot

Warner Bros. has purchased the spec screenplay Arthur and Lancelot from filmmaker David Dobkin.

The script ignited a bidding war between Warner Bros., Fox, and Universal, which Warner Bros. won with a hefty $2 million bid. The project is described as a modern reimagining of the King Arthur and Sir Lancelot legendary tales.

David Dobkin will direct from his own screenplay and produce alongside Lionel Wigram. Jeff Kleeman will executive produce Arthur and Lancelot.

The project is budgeted at $90 million, although it isn't known when production might start on Arthur and Lancelot.

Warner Bros. Fast Tracks David Dobkin's Arthur & Lancelot Comedy

Warner Bros. Fast Tracks David Dobkin's Arthur & Lancelot Comedy image
The Knights of the Round Table-- you know, King Arthur, Lancelot, the sword in the stone, Gallahad, all those guys-- are the kind of historical figures who get recycled into movies of all shapes and sizes. There's the classic parody take from Monty Python, the classic dull epic take in King Arthur, the classic-only-to-me A Kid in King Arthur's Court, and dozens of others in-between. Last month news broke that Wedding Crashes and The Change-Up director David Dobkin would be the latest director to mine the ancient knights for comedy, with Warner Bros. picking up his spec scripts Arthur & Lancelot to the tune of $2 million. We knew they were excited to move forward with the script, but now we know just how eager they are to get going.

According to Deadline, the studio has set a release date of March 15, 2013 for the film, which means Dobkin has about 20 months to finish the script, cast the film, and shoot a movie described as a "$90 million budget contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale." I guess he'll save time not having to scout medieval locations and hiring a bunch of horse wranglers, but still, a $90 million comedy suggests something large-scale. As if the huge budget and fast-tracked release date didn't tell you already, the studio is so gung ho about the movie that they've essentially cancelled the competing Excalibur remakes they were developing simultaneously, one from Bryan Singer and the other coming from Guy Ritchie. Sure, those guys have plenty else going on to keep them busy, but I imagine neither is happy to hear this morning that they've been bumped out by the director of Fred Claus.

The one thing that surprises me about the studio's enthusiasm over Arthur & Lancelot is the recent flop of Your Highness, a stoner movie set in the middle ages that wasn't exactly similar, but still tried to make guys in armor and swords palatable to a fratty audience. I guess the modern day setting is enough of a difference to make WB enthusiastic, and again, this is the guy who turned a story about Santa's dumb younger brother into a $97 million worldwide success. Say what you will about Dobkin, but he tends to know what people want even if they don't know themselves.

WB Fast-Tracks ‘Arthur & Lancelot,’ Kills ‘Excalibur’ Remake in the Process

Posted on Monday, July 25th, 2011 by Russ Fischer

Briefly: It is very possible that you’ll read of Warner Bros.’ enthusiasm for the David Dobkin script Arthur & Lancelot and give a shrug. We know little about the story, after all, other than the fact that it comes from the Wedding Crashers and The Change-Up director and is a contemporary retelling of the Arthurian legend. We don’t even know much about the tone — is it comic, action-oriented, or something else? — but the fact that Sherlock Holmes producer Lionel Wigram is backing the project suggests a blend of action and comedy.

What might be interesting, however, is that Deadline reports two casualties of the process in which WB fast-tracked Arthur & Lancelot for a March 15, 2013 release. The Bryan Singer remake of Excalibur, and Guy Ritchie and John Hodge‘s other Arthur film are both dead, says the site.
