Yet another film facing budget problems.
Following yesterday’s news that Alex Proyas’ ‘Paradise Lost’ had its January start dated halted due to budgetary problems, Deadline is saying that writer/director David Dobkin’s action adventure ‘Arthur & Lancelot’ has become the latest film to face financial difficulties.
A “contemporary re-imagining” of the King Arthur legend, Dobkin’s film has Kit Harington (‘Game Of Thrones’) and Joel Kinnaman (‘The Killing’) attached to play the titular roles. The film was originally budgeted at $90 million but Warner Bros. is worried the price tag could reach up to $130 million, and the studio feels that is just too much for a movie with two unproven leads.
The studio has apparently invited Dobkin to set the project up at another studio if he can.
