Back in March we've told you that Starz was planning to shoot "Camelot" historical TV show with the team that made "The Tudors", and now we have the first casting updates. With the original new approach to the timeless Arthurian legend the producers are planning to weave authenticity into a modern telling of the Arthur legends that is relatable to contemporary audiences. Now, with the shooting scheduled for June in Ireland, "Camelot" also has the first stars: young Jamie Campbell Bower ("Harry Potter", "Game of Thrones", "New Moon") will appear as King Arthur while lovely Tamsin Egerton ("St. Trinians") will play Guinevere. Two more famous names include Eva Green, who is supposed to play sorceress Morgana la Fay, and Joseph Fiennes with whom the producers are negotiating around the role of Merlin. HOLLYWOOD SPY will keep you posted on the casting process.
