Michael Shannon is in talks to direct the fourth and final installment of the epic fantasy franchise.
Warrior king is set in the year 2166.
It’s a long way from the epic events in ‘Bravehearts’ and the film is set to be set before the events of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’
Warrior Kings has been in development since 2007 and was first announced in April.
It was set for release in 2020, but it was delayed until 2019.
The studio, Warner Bros., will be producing.
Shannon, who has portrayed a number of prominent characters, including a cowboy and a pirate, is repped by ICM Partners and WME.
The project will also be helmed by John Ridley.
Warriors will star Tom Hardy as a charismatic warrior who is tasked with taking down a giant alien invasion.
It is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2019.
