Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Days Later”) is set to direct the live action remake of the classic Disney animated film, “Sword In The Stone”. In addition, Bryan Cogman (“Game Of Thrones”) has written the script for “Sword And The Stone”. Expect this live action of “Sword And The Stone” version to be….kind of dark.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, perhaps best known for directing the zombie thriller 28 Weeks Later, is in negotiations to helm The Sword in the Stone, Disney’s live-action reimagining of the studio’s 1963 animated fantasy.

Bryan Cogman, a writer-producer on HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, wrote the script for the project, which is being produced by Brigham Taylor (The Jungle Book).

Stone is the second Arthurian project the studio is developing as it’s also working on The Merlin Saga, with Ridley Scott circling the tale of the powerful wizard’s rise.
