Links to our threads on Arthurian derivatives King Arthur (2004; what if Arthur were really a Roman general?), The Last Legion (2007; what if Arthur were really the son of a Roman emperor?), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) and Roundtable (what if the Arthurian knights were modern-day ghostbusters?).

John Woo fires off 'Caliber'

John Woo will direct comicbook adaptation "Caliber," to be unveiled at next week's Comic-Con in San Diego.

Pic looks likely to be a three-way co-production of Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil, Barry Levine's Radical Comics and Lion Rock, the U.S.-based shingle that Woo runs with longstanding partner Terence Chang.

Radical Comics' hit story sets King Arthur and his knights as 19th century gunslingers in the Pacific Northwest. . . .

Variety, July 16

"Sympathy must precede belligerence. First I must understand the other, as it were, from the inside; then I can critique it from the outside. So many people skip right to the latter." -- Steven D. Greydanus

Give me strength. I don't know if I can take another Arthurian mangling. "Lance Lake"!

There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)
