Another day, another Disney live-action remake!

This time it's the classic The Sword In The Stone that's being given a reboot, with a live-action version currently in the works at Disney.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script is being written by Game of Thrones writer and producer Bryan Cogman… though presumably won't be quite as violent as that!

Originally released in 1963, the animated fantasy told the story of a magical sword stuck in a stone: only the true heir to the throne can remove it.

It's just the latest in a long string of Disney animated classics getting the reworked, live-action treatment: we saw Cinderella last year and Maleficent, which was based on the Sleeping Beauty story.

Emma Watson is currently filming a live-action Beauty and the Beast,while plans are also underway for a prequel to Aladdin, detailing how the genie ended up stuck in a lamp.
