HollywoodReporter.com — It looks like Charlie Hunnam, whose gritty biker drama Sons of Anarchy will wrap up its final season this year, is already lining up his next project. The actor is circling the lead role in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur project, Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.

The Warner Bros. project, with a script by Joby Harold, is a reimagining of the story of King Arthur and his legendary knights of the kingdom of Camelot.

If Hunnam signs on, it’ll be a reunion for the actor with his Pacific Rim co-star, Idris Elba. The actor is in talks to play Bedivere, Arthur’s father’s right-hand man, who is will teach Arthur how to lead an army.

Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Harold are producing.

Hunnam has starred on FX’s biker show since 2008. The show will end after its seventh season, which begins airing in September. Hunnam’s recent film project have included Guillermo del Toro’s robot vs. monster film Pacific Rim and the upcoming Crimson Peak. The actor was at one time attached to star in Fifty Shades of Grey, but ended up leaving the project, and was replaced by Jamie Dornan. He’s repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane, Offer.

Charlie Hunnam Misses His ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Co-Star as Much as We Do

In this exclusive clip from an extra feature on the Sons of Anarchy season 6 Blu-ray, out Aug. 26, Hunnam recounts the sadness he felt in losing Siff, with whom he says he shared “the greatest collaboration I’ve ever had with another actor.”

“I really enjoyed working with her,” he says in the video above, “and I think out of all the things we’ve achieved on Sons of Anarchy, the relationship with Jax and Tara is the thing that I find plays the most real and deep and rich and has been the thing I’ve been most proud of.”

The season premiere of Sons of Anarchy’s final season, airing Sept. 9, will pick up 10 days after the bloody final and show Jax in jail on a parole violation and dealing with the loss of his wife.

Charlie Hunnam Confirmed for Pacific Rim 2

August 9th, 2014

Pacific Rim 2 is now shaping up as Charlie Hunnam confirms his reappearance in this sequel as Raliegh! Guillermo del Toro, the director, even gave a glimpse of this character as he shared:

“We are taking the characters into a completely different journey this time because Raleigh (played by Hunnam) for me solved his problem the minute he was able to go full circle and save Mako by sacrificing himself, which is what he couldn’t do with his brother. He’s not on that journey anymore, he’s on a new journey,” (via IB Times).

The hype lives on as del Toro also revealed his favorite character in the film, Mako Morin played by Rinko Kikuchi:
“To me, my favorite character in many ways is Mako Mori in “Pacific Rim,”

“I just love it. It’s an experience that you can’t get any other way.”

The next Pacific Rim will allegedly have a different feel this time. According to the director Guillermo Del Toro, they are currently formulating ideas that are not the usual route. The film will allegedly highlight different parts of the world to give it a different feel! He even told The Wall Street Journal:
“All of this happens prior to the first movie, and it gives you a little more depth into the background of certain characters that will appear in the second movie. So by the time the second movie comes out, you will have probably one year of the animation airing, and you will have three years of the comic book series ongoing.”
“The series tackles the stories that happened to pilots working in the Shatterdome, but also cadets learning how to become pilots,” he shared.

“It was hard to create a world that did not come from a comic book that had its own mythology, so we had to sacrifice many aspects to be able to cram everything in the first movie. Namely, for example, ‘the Drift,’ which was an interesting concept,” director Guillermo Del Toro told The Wall Street Journal.

Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull said earlier this year that he considers Pacific Rim a financial success, especially considering the fact that it was an original IP. There were further good signs this summer when del Toro revealed that he was working with Zak Penn on writing a sequel, and now Universal has officially announced that Pacific Rim 2 will arrive in 3D and IMAX theaters on April 7th, 2017.

“The characters I love will return. Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.”

The co-writer and director didn’t give away any further details about the plot of Pacific Rim 2 in his video announcement but he did sound very pleased by the deal, saying, “We’re all very happy to be bringing you more Kaijus and more Jaegers kicking each other’s butt.”

Pacific Rim 2 Script In The Works

June 8th, 2014

I’m very excited to hear this news personally and hope that it actually becomes a reality!

Buzzfeed recently chatted with director Guillermo del Toro about his upcoming television series The Strain, which will premiere on FX. During their discussion Buzzfeed asked him about the possibility of another Pacific Rim film. “I’m working very, very hard with Zak Penn (“The Incredible Hulk”),” he told Buzzfeed. “We’ve been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham [co-writer of the first film, now working on Fox’s Hieroglyph] was involved in the storyline and now I’m writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul.”

At this time, Legendary Pictures has not given Pacific Rim 2 the greenlight. In March, Legendary CEO Thomas Tull told Collider, “It did north of 400 million dollars globally and both the home video sales and the merchandise have way over-indexed, so it seems like fans really loved the world. So we’re going to sit down with Guillermo and as long as we think it’s authentic and there’s something to say, we’re certainly open to it.”

As for the script, del Toro revealed that Jaeger pilots, Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), are involved in the storyline. Clearly, that means it is a sequel and not a prequel as many had speculated it might be. “Some people were wondering if we were going to do the prequel. I was never interested in doing that first wave of invasion,” del Toro said. He concluded with this spirited message about Pacific Rim 2: “I’m going for very new, very crazy ideas on the second one, which are very different from the first one — but you will get really great spectacle.”
