Charlie Hunnam is trading in his hog for a horse. That’s right, the “Sons of Anarchy” star, who portrayed the beloved role of Jax Teller for seven seasons on the FX show, will be taking on a more regal role in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming film “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.”

But don’t fret, Hunnam-lovers! Although the “SoA” bad boy is embodying a noble character in the 2016 flick, the director promised audiences that they could anticipate for the actor to revive some of Jax’s rebellious and corruptive qualities while playing the “bland” British hero.

“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” Ritchie, who directed movies from “Snatch.” to “Sherlock Holmes,” told Entertainment Weekly before explaining why he wanted to create a darker image for King Arthur. “The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in ‘Star Wars’ because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”

They sure are. And if Hunnam knows one thing, it’s how to be a bad, bad boy -- not to mention, look good while doing it.

“He’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” Hunnam elaborated on his character who was reportedly raised by three prostitutes after being orphaned as an infant. "He’s a little bit rough around the edges," he unveiled the film's interpretation of the king.

According to reports, the movie's depiction of the iconic figure will stray from the virtuous version we’ve read about in fairytales. Instead, this King Arthur will have “harder edge to him than people would imagine,” Hunnam said before stating that it’s a “classic Guy Ritchie” character.

The movie’s producer, Lionel Wigram, stated that he hopes “loyalists won’t be too offended” by their version of the sword-wielding knight.

Entertainment Weekly gave movie goers a sneak peek at Hunnam’s rough and rugged new role in the epic, medieval flick set to hit theaters in 2016. Check out the heart-racing images of Hunnam as King Arthur that are so powerful, it'll give even you the ability to pull out Exaclibur from the stone!
