Bryan Singer May Bring Forth an Excalibur Remake

Maybe it's because I'm not completely precious about the early-'80s movie, but for whatever reason, this is a remake I actually wouldn't mind seeing made with modern-day technology. Warner Brothers and director Bryan Singer are reportedly in talks to bring Camelot, Lancelot, and Guenevere back to the big screen in a remake of the 1981 film Excalibur. Here's more:

The [1981] movie told the well-known myth, in a gritty and dramatic fashion, of the young man who draws the sword Excalibur from a stone, is mentored by Merlin, establishes Camelot, loses his wife, Guenevere, to his best friend, Lancelot, and engages in the quest for the Holy Grail.

Singer's Excalibur will be a more epic and fantasy version compared with the more earthy Clive Owen-starring King Arthur movie released by Disney/Touchstone in 2004.

Mmm . . . I remember Clive Owen as Arthur . . . sigh. Anyway, I really like the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable, so I'll be curious to see it come alive again on the big screen. I just wonder who should play these classic roles (all I can see in my head is Clive Owen now). Who would you cast in this remake?
