Aidan joins star-studded King Arthur cast

Game Of Thrones star Aidan Gillen has joined the star-studded cast of Guy Ritchie's King Arthur.

The Drumcondra native has been cast opposite Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law and Eric Bana in the flick which is set to shoot at different locations across Britain.

Filming has begun at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden in England, with location shooting to take place in Wales and Scotland.

It is thought the film will put on a modern twist on the classic tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

"The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur - and with it, his future," Warner Brothers Studios said.

The film is set for release on July 22, 2016.
