|‘Variety’ reports that Ridley Scott is in talks to direct Disney‘s THE MERLIN SAGA which is eyed as a possible franchise based on 12 books from T.A. Barron which he started publishing back in 1996! He would also produce it with Lord of the Rings‘ and Hobbit‘s Philippa Boyens writing the script! Similar to the popular BBC series from a decade ago, THE MERLIN SAGA depicts the origin story of a young wizard Merlin who would go on to become the mentor of the classic literary character of King Arthur. It is even more interesting that Disney is preparing another movie from this universe – a live-action version of SWORD IN THE STONE which Ridley could also produce.|
|The Merlin saga has 12 books so far!|
NEW PHOTOS WITH JUDE LAW AND EDDIE REDMAYNE!
|FANTASTIC BEASTS 2: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD featuring lead star Eddie Redmayne and also Jude Law. The movie which is out next November continues the story after the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. Hopefully this one ain’t as ghastly bad and boring as the first one!|
