Futuristic ‘Robin Hood’ Movie Now Also in The Works
Next month Robin Hood: Origins goes into production with Kingsman star Taron Egerton. However, another possible Robin Hood movie may be in the works. This film has been in development for almost 6 years. Tentatively titled Robin Hood 2058 follows a futuristic take on the classic outlaw story; much in the vein of the post-apocalyptic Zorro: Reborn movie.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that UK screenwriter Tony Lee has taken over screenwriting duties for this film from the producers of 300. The Hollywood Reporter adds the story has been described as a “futuristic reimagining of Robin Hood” and is set in a “dystopian London with a rogue MI5 agent on a mission to avenge injustice.”
Previous writers on this project include American Sniper screenwriter Jason Dean Hall and The Throwaways writer Michael Ross.
Robin Hood 2058 has no set release date
