Action/adventure, time travel script back to King Arthur's Camelot
Pendragon is a romantic, action movie for the entire family. King Arthur is the Arthur of legend, a strong, fair leader. Pendragon has the chivalry of "Ivanhoe" with Robert Taylor, the swashbuckling of Errol Flynn in "Robin Hood", and the reality of "Braveheart" with Mel Gibson.
Our hero is Marlin Ambrose, a mid-thirties disenchanted son of a rich man.
What makes the story unique is after the lighting bolt sends Marlin back to 500 AD he doesn't find himself at a great advantage. He can't make a gun. He can't build a car. He doesn't know how to generate electricity. Marlin can do nothing more then you or me. He has only his wits to survive.
At first he is captured by King Arthur's men and hung like a tree ornament on a big oak. Luckily, Sir Kay, King Arthur's half-brother, a crusty old knight, rides by the tree and asks his name. Marlin, parched from a day hanging in the sun, mutters, "Marlin". Sir Kay hears "Merlin" and proclaims him to be Merlin, a priest of Avalon, send back to help Arthur unite all Britain. Faced with the choices of "bird feeder" or "Merlin" Marlin opts for Merlin. He is not the spell-casting, magician of legend.
Filled with adventure, romance and humor Marlin becomes the Merlin of Camelot, chief counselor to King Arthur Pendragon, High King of all Britain and returns back to our time to fulfill his destiny.
