    Recently there was planned a remake of the movie Excalibur , but it was canceled
    this is what i found on the subject matter
    "The project was with Warner Bros and what happened is that another King Arthur project was brought to them during that time. Basically, it was just more ready to go into production than ours was."
    the project is rumored to be akin to the 2004 roman arthur movie
    Excalibur is my favorite movie if there is a remake i really hope it will be done by Riddley Scott his work on Gladiator,Kingdom of Heaven and Robin Hood is amazing

    Some films can't be remade, look at Wiccerman and The Omen. They're better off going for a new Arthurian movie.

    Galdiator was fantastic

    Kingdom of Heaven suffered a bit from elfy being - well - he's a good elf, but he's just not got the strength of voice and character to really carry it I feel.

    Robin Hood -- nice visuals, good action etc.. -but -- I can't help but feel that they either followed a very uncommon version (ie a version either more or less truthful which differs greatly to the commonly told versions) or just did their own thing to the background story. It didn't "feel" like Robin Hood.
