Just So You Know, Disney's New Live Action 'Merlin' Movie Looks Fkn EPIC
Disney is pressing ahead with its new live-action Merlin film, with the studio apparently targeting legendary Alien director Sir Ridley Scott to take the helm.
The studio is in the process of adapting The Merlin Saga, T. A. Barron's series of YA novels, and Scott is reportedly in talks to head up the project.
Should he sign on the dotted line, he’ll team up with screenwriter Phillipa Boyens, best known for her work co-writing the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
As for the story, the books are set long before Merlin linked up with King Arthur, and follow the young wizard as he learns his magical trade.
It’s not a done deal just yet, but it’s an interesting move from Disney. Fingers crossed this one gets done sooner rather than later…
