Guy RitchieGuy Ritchie has signed up to direct a new movie retelling the legend of King Arthur.

The story of the British monarch, which has spawned numerous myths and fantasy tales, was previously the subject of a 2004 blockbuster starring Keira Knightley and Clive Owen.

Now the legend will be heading back to theaters in a new film directed by Ritchie, which will rework the story to show the sixth century ruler's defeat of Saxon invaders.
