Director Guy Ritchie Tells That Charlie Hunnam Wasn’t The First Choice For 'King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword'
Actor Charlie Hunnam will next be seen 'King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword' which is directed by Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie. But the director said that Charlie was not even in the ‘top 10 list of actors’ while they were finalising the cast of the movie. "Charlie wasn't on my top ten list of actors for the role. But he insisted he was going to get himself in the room, and he was established enough to finagle his way into that room," Ritchie said in a statement.
He added, "He just ground down the competition until I surrendered and cast him. From there, I knew he was going to be the right man. We have a very similar sensibility, in terms of humour and our interest in film. So it was a shorthand with Charlie all the way through production."
Like all the actors who transform themselves for the role, Hunnam too worked hard on his physique to suit the role. 'King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword' focuses on the story of the legendary warrior, his famed knights of the round table, and the magician Merlin. The movie will hit the screens on may 12, 2017 in India.
