Filming of the Walt Disney historical epic 'King
Arthur' started in Ireland in summer 2003 and was released in July 2004.
The Touchstone Pictures film, produced by Jerry
Bruckheimer (of 'Top Gun' and 'Pearl Harbour' fame), focuses on the
history and politics of the period of Arthur's rule promising a more realistic portrayal
of the legend.
Clive Owen plays Arthur and Keira Knightly has
been cast as Guinevere. Ray Winstone (picture © The Z Review) is Bors, one of King Arthur's
Knights of the Round Table.
Steel Nail Co was commissioned to produce nail heads only to help create the realistic
effects for the Roman fortress set. This involved manufacturing the nails then cutting off
the shank to leave the
heads. Click on the pictures to see a close up of the nail heads in place.
