Disney is hiring screenwriter Bryan Cogman, putting him with producer Brigham Taylor, to create a new live-action take on Sword in the Stone. Cogman seems to be quite the geek, as he's also working on adapting Magic: The Gathering for Fox not to mention his "Game of Thrones" work. The original Disney animated Sword in the Stone movie was released in 1963 and featured a story where Merlin helped transform a boy into the great hero King Arthur. No details were provided yet on whether this new version will be another retelling of that exact story, or an updated take for modern times. Only time will tell once the script is done, approved, ready, and they find a director, and so on.
