The nascent genre of revisionist fairy tales was dealt a blow today when two of its high-profile upcoming releases, Jack the Giant Killer and Arthur & Lancelot, both of which are in development at Warner Bros., were hit with major delays, THR reports. Bryan Singer’s fantasy epic Jack the Giant Killer, starring Ewan McGregor, saw its release date moved from June 15 of this year to March 22, 2013 — a whopping nine-month shift. The news was considerably more dire for Arthur & Lancelot, David Dobkin’s new take on the Arthurian legend, starring Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman. That film was moved from March 15, 2013, to never. The project is now in turnaround, as Warner Bros. executives scramble to figure out how a big-budget period fantasy starring Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman was ever greenlit in the first place.
