BREAKING: Guy Ritchie Back On SGT ROCK

, Founder and Editor
What's next for Guy Ritchie after Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows? There has been talk of Excalibur but Twitch has learned that Warner Brothers is putting the Warren Ellis scripted project aside and instead wants Ritchie to focus on a title from his past: The DC Comics adaptation Sgt Rock.

Ritchie was initially linked to the Sgt Rock adaptation a few years back but eventually gave way to Francis Lawrence, who wanted to take the film away from the comics WWII setting and give it a futuristic spin, instead. But Twitch has learned that Warner Brothers and producer Joel Silver have now put Sgt Rock back in Ritchie's court and are lining it up as his next film.

Though the change has not yet been announced Ritchie is already supervising the current draft of the screenplay, one that retains the original setting and pits the title character against German troops in WWII.
