Disney is continuing to reach deeper and deeper into the vault to see what cartoon classic will be the next to get a live-action adaptation.

It looks like the studio is revisiting its 1963 classic The Sword in the Stone, a family-friendly retelling of the legend of King Arthur, as its next live-action reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Sword in the Stone tells the story of a young Arthur who is mentored by the friendly old wizard Merlin, so it only makes sense that Disney would tap Game of Thrones writer-producer Bryan Cogman to pen the script.

Cogman has been nominated for four WGA Awards and is currently working on the screenplay for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering feature. Hopefully we can expect a grittier, darker version of the Arthurian legend than we got in the original Sword in the Stone.
