WHAT:  The timeless tale of William (Heath Ledger) and his band of
       medieval misfits -- including serious, soft-hearted Roland
       (Mark Addy), hot-headed, flame-haired Wat (Alan Tudyk) and
       unemployed writer Geoff Chaucer (Paul Bettany) -- careening
       toward impossible glory, Columbia Pictures' "A Knight's Tale"
       is the oddball, sometimes awe-inspiring story of a rookie
       discovering if he is the stuff of which legends are made.

       Part road trip, part romance, part exuberant action-adventure,
       the film is a rich, romantic, raucous ride during which a young
       squire embarks on a quest to change his stars, win the heart of
       an exceedingly fair maiden (Shannyn Sossamon) and rock his
       medieval world.

       As modern, accessible, vibrant, funny, sexy and stylish as the
       sleek, new-age armor William dons in his climb up the ladder of
       riches and fame, the colorful saga "A Knight's Tale" springs
       from the imagination of Academy Award®-winning writer-
       director Brian Helgeland ("L.A. Confidential," "Payback"). The
       Escape Artists/Finestkind Production is produced by Tim Van
       Rellim ("Invisible Circus," "K-2") and Todd Black ("Fire In The
       Sky," "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway").

       The international cast also includes Rufus Sewell, Laura
       Fraser, Berenice Bejo, Christopher Cazenove and James Purefoy.
       The creative team includes Academy Award®-nominated director
       of photography Richard Greatrex, BSC; Academy Award®-
       nominated production designer Tony Burrough; and costume and
       armor designer Caroline Harris, all from England. Editor Kevin
       Stitt comes from the United States, as does composer Carter
       Burwell. The international company numbered technicians,
       artisans and staff from England, the Czech Republic, the United
       States, Italy, Germany, Ireland and Hungary.

This film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for action violence, some nudity and brief sex-related dialogue.

``A Knight's Tale'' is in theaters Friday, May 11.
