The Green Knight is an upcoming medieval fantasy film written and directed by David Lowery. It stars Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie and Sean Harris. The story is based on the poem of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

It is scheduled to be released on May 29, 2020, by A24.


A fantasy adventure based on the Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic green-skinned stranger.



It was announced in November 2018 that David Lowery would direct a retelling of the 14th century tale Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, with A24, Ley Line Entertainment, and Bron Studios set to finance.[1]

In March 2019, Dev Patel entered negotiations to star in the film.[2] That same month, Barry Keoghan and Ralph Ineson joined the cast of the film.[3] In April 2019, it was announced Alicia Vikander and Erin Kellyman had been cast in the film.[4][5]

Principal photography began in March 2019, with Ardmore Studios as a filming location. Weta Digital will work on the visual effects.[6][7][8]


It is scheduled to be released on May 29, 2020.[9]
