DreamWorks seated at 'Roundtable'
Resolving a heated bidding war, Brian K. Vaughan has sold his supernatural comedy spec "Roundtable" to DreamWorks for $650,000 against $1 million. Several competing suitors attempted to yank Vaughan's sword out of the rock, including MGM. . . .
In "Roundtable," Vaughan tries out yet another tweak on the oft-revised King Arthur legend. His spin, more "Ghostbusters" than "Excalibur," revolves around Merlin assembling a bunch of modern-day knights to battle a resurrected ancient evil, only to discover that today's knights are all washed-up athletes, cowardly scientists or Academy Award-winning actors. . . .
