King Arthur: IGN Filmforce reports that Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl star Kiera Knightly has joined the cast of producer Jerry Bruckheimer's King Arthur. Knightly will play the role of Guinevere alongside Clive Owen who has been cast as King Arthur and Stephen Dillane as Merlin.

Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Tears of the Sun) directs with Jerry Bruckheimer producing the story about the history and politics of the period during which Arthur ruled -- when the Roman empire collapsed and skirmishes over power broke out in outlying countries.
