Time to pull out my Carl Orff CD, because Warner Bros. is remaking Excalibur! Well, I'm actually not all that thrilled on the remake, but at least it will draw attention to the original movie.

Wait. Wait. Bryan Singer might direct? Fine, I'm in.

Excalibur Remake Coming

Warner Bros. has acquired the screen rights to Excalibur and they are working with Bryan Singer to get production moving. If all goes to plan, Bryan Singer will likely get behind the camera for this one.

If you've never seen Excalibur -- go rent it! -- or don't recognize the name King Arthur, then here's a bit of a rundown. Excalibur plays on the whole sword in the stone tale, and then leads it to knights having sex with hotties without ever removing their armor. Okay, it didn't necessarily jump to that, but you can't deny that it did happen. Anywho, where was I...

Excalibur is the quintessential myth-of-King-Arthur film, complete with the enchanted sword, the Knights of the Round Table, Merlyn the wizard and the quest for the Holy Grail to save Arthur’s life.

The original had quite the cast, further launching the careers of Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson as well as Gabriel Byrne, Patrick Stewart and Ciaran Hinds.

Excalibur is my favorite King Arthur film and I can only hope that WB doesn't mess it up. They are on the right path with Singer, who appreciates a good epic.
