Alien director Ridley Scott is in talks to helm a live-action adaptation of The Merlin Saga for Disney, according to Variety. Based on the T.A. Barron books of the same name, the movie would focus on Merlin rather than most Arthurian stories that focus on King Arthur.

Disney is also said to be working on a live action version of The Sword in the Stone, the original animated version of which adapts a portion of the King Arthur legend, for which Scott also reportedly met with Disney executives.
