Robin Hood | Nov 21 2018 | Lionsgate | Taron Egerton is Robin Hood, Jamie Foxx is Little John

Recommended Posts




It looks like the Kingsman actor might be trading in his suit for a green cap and a bow. Taron Egerton is in early talks to play the titular archer in ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS, and though scheduling issues with a possible Kingsman sequel may hamstring these talks, it’s clear that Egerton is the first choice for the part.


Otto Bathurst will be directing the Joby Harold script, which has been reported to be a darker take on the Robin Hood story, similar to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films. Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson, and Safe House’s Harold and Tory Tunnell and Basil Iwanyk are producing.

Every single one of these is being compared to something else


 Disney has the Brandon Barker spec Nottingham & Hood, which is said to be in the vein of Pirates Of The Caribbean and Enchanted. The Picture Company’s Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona are producing. Sony last fall bought a Robin Hood pitch for $1 million from Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott with Jerry Bruckheimer producing and Aperture’s Adam Goldworm executive producing. That project, Hood, has been described as Fast And Furious meets Mission: Impossible. Warner Bros has also quietly put one of its own Robin Hood projects into development, scripted by Gangster Squad and Aquaman scribe Will Beall and produced by The Lego Movie‘s Dan Lin and John Zaozirny.
