A Green New Deal for Dev Patel

Dev Patel -- who's got the real-world terrorism thriller Hotel Mumbai with Armie Hammer out in a couple of weeks (watch the trailer here) -- is maybe about to star in a new project worth noting! He's in talks to star in The Green Knight, an adaptation of the 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight from A Ghost Story director David Lowery. I can't believe nobody's ever made a good movie...

... I said a good movie... out of Gawain before, can you? That said I haven't read the poem since college so I just skimmed the plot on Wiki and, well... there's way more gay kissing than I remember! I guess we need to keep an eye peeled on who gets the role of "Bertilak de Hautdesert" then. Might I make a suggestion?
