Colin Farrell No Longer the New Richard Gere
The narrowed, furrowed glare of Colin Farrell is no longer fixed upon the role of Lancelot.
Though Farrell was earlier this month in talks to take the Lancelot role in Warner Bros.' long-delayed Arthur & Lancelot--replacing Joel Kinnaman, who is now being reassembled as a cyborg police officer--Deadline claims those talks did not work out--possibly, it's implied, because "there is a lot of prep and training required for the action heavy role." Colin Farrell does not gel his hair up every morning to train to swing a sword around, got it, Warner Bros.?
Regardless, the studio still paid $2 million for this script, and still wants to get it made by its proposed March 15, 2013 release date, so new casting is expected to move forward quickly. If you're interested in being the new Richard Gere, please let Warner Bros. know.
