Ever since he landed on the 2012 Black List, Jack Paglen has held some enviable company: next week sees the release of “Transcendence," directed by Wally Pfister and starring Johnny Depp, and last summer he was revealed as the new writer for Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus 2”.

But speaking with SFX (via Punch Drunk Critics) Singer reveals that it was actually David Dobkin's recently announced, and much more prepared "Arthur & Lancelot" that stalled out "Excalibur," and moreover, he's returning to big sci-fi project he signed on for years ago, that we figured was on a distant backburner.
