   He loves ‘s’.  That explains the lisp.

Variety reports that Bryan Singer has signed on to produce (and maybe direct) an Excalibur remake.  The 1981 version (trailer below along with a picture of the actual sword) starred Liam Nesson, Helen Mirren, Gabriel Byrne, and Patrick Stewart, among others. I heard from a very reliable source (my subconscious) that Singer’s remake is going to feature lots of teenagers showering.

Excalibur, as most of you probably already know, is the story of King Arthur, who theorized that one could time travel within his own lifetime, and led an elite group of knights around a round table to develop a top-secret project known as Holy Grail.  Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, King Arthur prematurely pulled the magic sword from the stone, and vanished.  He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was maintained through crystal-ball transmissions with Merlin, the project observer, who appears in the form of a hologram, that only King Arthur can see and hear. Trapped in the past, King Arthur finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.
