Luke Evans for King Arthur role?

Luke Evans could be set to play King Arthur

Luke Evans could be preparing for another medieval role in Arthur And Lancelot.

The Three Musketeers star's name is said to be in the mix to portray King Arthur, alongside Toby Kebbell, Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harington and his screen half-brother Richard Madden, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The Killing's Joel Kinnaman has already been cast as Lancelot in the upcoming adaptation by Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, while Guinevere, the woman who comes between the king and his knight, is expected to be announced shortly.

Filming is scheduled to begin next year.

King Arthur has been a prestigious part to play, both on stage and on screen, with Richard Harris, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, John Gielgud and Clive Owen taking on the legendary role.

Next up for Welsh actor Luke is a role in Immortals, followed by Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings two-part prequel The Hobbit, where he plays Bard the Bowman.
