Warner Bros have landed Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin's spec script, which will be a reboot of the King Arthur story.

Variety confirms that the studio has won a heated bidding war for the project, beating out offers from both Fox and Universal.

The film is being envisioned as a big-budget comedy, which Dobkin will direct from his own script.

The acquisition casts doubt on reports that Guy Ritchie was to begin working on a King Arthur adaptation of his own for Warner Bros.

Antoine Fuqua was the last director to release a retelling of the Arthurian legend, in the poorly-received 2004 film King Arthur starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley.

Dobkin is currently best known for his successful comedy films, including Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Knights and Fred Claus.
