Merlin The Movie?

The magical masterminds behind BBC1’s hit series, Merlin, have announced that a movie may be on the cards.

Co-creators, Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, revealed that they are “in discussionsâ€? about the possibility of a Merlin film at a premier screening of the fourth series last night.

Prompting gasps from adoring fans, Capps said: “Julian and I are in discussions at the moment about whether or not to do a Merlin movie.â€?

The show’s original cast – including Bradley James, Colin Morgan, Angel Coulby and Katie McGrath – are expected to star but no further details have been released.

A fifth series of the fantasy drama has already got the golden thumbs up from the BBC.

Filming for the fourth series is currently being finished off in Wales, and fans can expect the fourth season to hit their screens early next month.
