    He's fictional, but you can't have everything.

Warner Bros. Conjures 'Merlin' Tentpole With Novice Screenwriting Wizard (Exclusive)
It’s the screenwriting equivalent of pulling the sword out of the stone.
Ed Whitworth, a script reader for Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Prods., has seemingly come out of nowhere to land the plum gig to write The Lost Years of Merlin, Warner Bros.’ big-budget adaptation of the first book of the fantasy series by T.A. Barron.
Donald De Line (Green Lantern) is producing what is basically an origin story of the mythical wizard. The film will trace Merlin’s journey from being a boy washed on the shores of Wales with no memory and no home, to him becoming a young man learning to use his powers and ultimately defender of the natural world and eventual mentor to King Arthur. . . .
