Script Review For Brian K. Vaughan’s ‘Roundtable’

Saturday, November 8, 2008 | Labels: | |

Our friends over at First Showing were able to get their hands on and offer up the first script review for Roundtable by Brian K. Vaughan.

For those unfamiliar with the project, it takes the well-known King Arthur world and creates a new story from it. Basically, after helping to keep things civil so long ago, the wizard Merlin now lives alone and does nothing all day. When informed that a dangerous old foe has returned, Merlin must gather up a new batch of knights to fight for England. Unfortunately, being modern day, the dangerous and skilled knights of old are no more — the knights of modern day are as follows: a scientist, an out-of-shape former athlete, an extremely rich jackass, and naturally… Michael Caine. Yes, the actual Michael Caine was written in as a character.

Judging by the script review, the movie has all sorts of promise. This was assumed right away just because it was Vaughan writing it, but now there’s confirmation that the characters and the story are all very solid, very funny and everything works really well.
