While YOUR HIGHNESS attempted to poke fun at the "swords and sorcery" genre (to mixed success), Warner Bros. is looking to take it seriously with a big-budget MERLIN picture in the works. The studio has bought the rights to THE LOST YEARS OF MERLIN for GREEN LANTERN producer Donald De Line.
The film will essentially be an origin story of Merlin, the great wizard, who started as a young boy washed ashore with no memory. He would later serve as a mentor to King Arthur. The movies will adapt the T.A. Barron books "The Lost Years of Merlin" into one epic tale.
