Astrid Berges-Frisbey has been cast as Lady Guinevere in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.

Elizabeth Olsen was originally pegged as the front runner for Lady Guinevere.

She joins Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) who will be playing King Arthur and Idris Elba as a “Merlin-type” character.  

I enjoy Guy Ritchie as a filmmaker (Swept Away aside) but I don’t know if I have much interest in a new King Arthur film. Antione Fuqua proved this with his own version of the King Arthur story some years back. Then again, Idris Elba as a Merlin-like character has my interest piqued.

What do you think? Any interest in this one?
