Warner Bros. has attached Guy Ritchie to direct and Trainspotting scribe John Hodge to develop a King Arthur project for Atlas Entertainment and Hollywood Gang, according to Variety.

Hodge is working on the script with Ritchie. The project aims to be a re-imagining of the legend of Arthur, believed to have been a 6th century king who defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Key source material will be Thomas Mallory's "Le Morte d'Arthur," published in 1485 as a compilation of French and English tales.

No production date has been set.
