Kick Ass star Mark Strong has revealed he would love to play a knight in shining armour in Guy Ritchie's new film.

The British director is reportedly working on a project based on King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table, and has previously cast Mark in his films Revolver, RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes.

Asked if he'd be appearing in the new movie, Mark said: "Maybe, a bit of Arthurian legend and sword swinging and all that, I'm not sure if that's happening or not but I love working with Guy he makes such a comfortable set that I'd be there anytime. I could be a knight in shining armour."

He added of Sherlock Holmes: "That was our third film together and I'm really pleased that it's done so well."

The British actor will next be appearing as alien supervillain Sinestro in comic book movie Green Lantern, but revealed he won't actually be a bad guy.

Mark said: "It's the origins story in which Sinestro is actually Hal's mentor.

"I go over to do that with Martin Campbell in New Orleans in the summer.

"I went over for the read through and the art work and the people involved with it mean it's going to be a really exciting thing."
