Disney is currently in early development of a new live-action movie called “Merlin”, based on the T.A Barron book series, which follows the origin story of a young Merlin who would go on to become the mentor of King Arthur.
According to Deadline, Michael Matthews is going to be directing the film. He has previously directed “Love & Monsters”. Originally the film was going to be directed by Ridley Scott, but he has had to leave the project due to a busy schedule.
“Merlin” is being produced by Gil Netter and Chris Weitz is writing the film, who is also working on the Disney+ Original film “Pinocchio“.
Disney currently has two different projects currently in development featuring Merlin, as there is also a “Sword In The Stone” live-action remake being made by Juan Carlos also in development for Disney+.
