London — Charlie Hunnam says as soon as he learned Guy Ritchie was making a King Arthur movie, he knew he wanted to be a part of it. The problem: Guy Ritchie didn't agree.

The solution turned out to be marijuana — talking about it, not indulging in it.

To change Richie's mind, Hunnam booked a trip to London on a week off from filming Sons of Anarchy and landed a meeting with the director. They ended up talking about medical marijuana for two hours.

Says Hunnam: "What he wanted to see was what I was about and whether we saw life in the same way."

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword opens in the SA on Friday, 12 May.
