Merlin Movie On Its Way!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

merlin movie in the works

With the Harry Potter series coming to a close, we take comfort knowing that wizards will return to the big screen!

Working Title is currently developing a Merlin film, based on a pitch by screenwriter/author Jay Basu, which will bring the legendary wizard into a contemporary setting.

Innerestingly enough, this film will NOT be the first time that Merlin has been placed in a modern setting.

There was a short-lived sitcom in 1981, Mr. Merlin, in which the wizard worked as an auto mechanic in San Francisco.

Sounds like a pretty strange show to us!

We'll be curious to see how they put Merlin into a contemporary setting, but we don't think we'd be too excited to watch him using his magic to fix up old cars.

What do U think about the idea of a contemporary Merlin movie?
