Charlie Hunnam wishes he could have another crack at the “King Arthur” film franchise.
Hunnam starred in “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. The 2017 film was supposed to spawn five sequels, but all of that was nixed after it bombed at the box office and cost Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures over $150 million.
“I’d like to go back to ‘King Arthur’ because there’s a lot of things [that] went wrong during that and a lot of things that were out of our control,” he told “Radio Andy” host Andy Cohen. “I just don’t think we ended up matching the aspiration.”
“We just didn’t quite make the movie we wanted,” Hunnam added. “The idea was that if it was a success, we would’ve made several of those films, and I’m really captivated by the Arthurian legends and I just feel like we really missed an opportunity to tell a long-form story.”
Hunnam was joined by “The Gentleman” co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Grant. The action crime drama premieres in theatres on Jan. 24. It also stars Michelle Dockery, Colin Farrell, and Henry Golding.
