We've always thought there was something rather enchanting about Marion Cotillard.

The "Contagion" star may have a new gig brewing as she's been offered the role of Morgana in the upcoming fantasy adventure, "Arthur & Lancelot," according to Vulture.

Morgana is a sorceress and the half-sister of King Arthur, who is set to be played by "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington. Joel Kinnaman of "The Killing" has been set for the role of Lancelot, and Warner Bros. reportedly very much wants Cotillard's "Dark Knight Rises" co-star, Gary Oldman, for the part of the world-famous magician, Merlin.

Casting directors are just full of imagination. For this reason, we get things like Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans cast as every superhero, or Michelle Rodriguez playing every female soldier who dies in a movie.

A cliché is a cliché for a reason, however, and that's why "Game of Thrones" star Sean Bean will be playing badass knights/kings for the rest of his life ("Lord of the Rings," "Black Death," "Mirror Mirror," etc). He's apparently also passed that Medieval gene off to his co-star on the popular HBO fantasy series, Kit Harington, as the 24-year-old Brit has just been chosen to play King Arthur.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harington will play the once and future King of ancient folklore in "Arthur & Lancelot," Warner Bros. jovial take on Arthurian legend from "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin. Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman from AMC’s "The Killing" tested with Harington last month in the role of Lancelot, but has yet to be confirmed. Get More »
