Another Year, Another ROBIN HOOD!! Sorta...

 

 

DreamWorks is putting together another ROBIN HOOD movie - a 'revisionist' (i.e. 're-imagined') take on the concept from scripter Brad Ingelsby.  

This is an ensemble piece centered around the supporting characters Little John, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and Will Scarlet. There is a high-concept revenge angle that tonally is reminiscent of The Dirty Dozen and Ocean’s Eleven. 

 ...explains THIS piece over at Deadline.  

ACT OF VALOR co-director Scott Waugh is attached to helm the project, which is being produced by Neal Moritz (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS series, I AM LEGEND, BATTLE: LOS ANGELES).  A few years ago, Warners was looking into a 'futuristic' Robin Hood project, we've recently seen a whole Robin Hood TV series from BBC, and back in 2010 Ridley Scott gave us his take on the myth by way of Russell Crowe.  So, clearly there's still some life in the legend and personalities - although I'll always prefer Daffy Duck's interpretation of the role...
