Starz is working on a King Arthur series starring Jamie Campbell Bower (RocknRolla, New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) as Arthur, Tamsin Egerton (St. Trinians, and who incidentally played the young version of Morgan le Fay in The Mists of Avalon) as Guinevere, Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, FlashForward) as Merlin, and Eva Green (Casino Royale) as Morgan le Fay. No word on Lancelot yet. [/Film]
I was trying to be excited by The Event because it's a conspiracy thriller starring Jason Ritter. I'm still going to give it a shot because of Jason Ritter, but the trailer for it made me a lot less excited about the story. And the above trailer for AMC's conspiracy thriller Rubicon looks so great that I'm even less interested in The Event now.
I haven't dug into AMC's Mad Men or Breaking Bad yet, but they're so well-talked-about that I have high expectations for the network's shot at a genre that I'm more into. [The Ausiello Files]
