Filming wraps on Joe Cornish movie
Filming has wrapped on The Kid Who Would Be King, a fantasy adventure film from director Joe Cornish, Big Talk, Working Title and Fox Searchlight.
Filming began at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in late September last year.
Cornish (pictured) directs from his own screenplay with Louis Ashbourne Serkis in the lead as Alex, a modern-day schoolboy who discovers the mythical sword Excalibur.
The cast includes Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson as evil villain Morgana.
The Kid Who Would Be King is one of several projects wrapping in the UK around now. The third series of Humans is finishing off a five-month shoot at Elstree Studios, while the four-part comedy Wannabe for BBC Three has also just lensed.
In Manchester, ITV's three-part drama Butterfly, starring and exec produced by Anna Friel, is due to wrap in early March.
