Charlie Hunnam nearing deal to play King Arthur

Actor Charlie Hunnam is nearing a deal to play the titular role in director Guy Ritchie's upcoming film, Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur.

The Sons of Anarchy star is in final negotiations to join the filmmaker's medieval movie, according to TheWrap.com.

The role will reunite Hunnam with his Pacific Rim co-star Idris Elba, who has already been tapped to play a knight named Bedivere, who trains Arthur for battle.

Hunnam is nearing the end of his seven-season run on biker drama Sons of Anarchy, and recently wrapped a second film with Pacific Rim director Guillermo de Toro, called Crimson Peak.
