Kevin Kline portrays Errol Flynn in The Last of Robin Hood trailer

Isn't it about time that Kevin Kline get some Academy recognition? A FISH CALLED WANDA aside, he seems like he's ripe for that "KING'S SPEECH role" that takes a reliable actor, and gives him a great script to chew through. While I don't think THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD is it, I do think Kline fits in nicely with that old-timey sentimentality.

Take in old Hollywood here:

The synopsis goes a little something like this:

The Last of Robin Hood is the true story of Beverly Aadland, a teen starlet who became the last girlfriend of legendary swashbuckler Errol Flynn. In 1957, Beverly was working at Warner Brothers studios with a fake birth certificate saying she was 18 -- she was in fact, only 15 -- when she encountered the former matinée idol. After a bumpy start, the two undertook a relationship that was ultimately embraced by Beverly's Hollywood mother Florence, who became a willing third wheel. The Last of Robin Hood is a poignant yet darkly comic coming-of-age tale about the desire for fame and the price it exacts.

Given the subject matter, I'd love to see a similar modern-day story of an aging actor totally going for an underage girl. Somehow I don't think it would carry with it the charm that this flick has. Regardless, I love these little sneak peeks behind the famous faces of yesteryear, and it looks to be a solid role for Kline at the least.

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD, starring Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning, Susan Sarandon, Sean Flynn, Bryan Batt, and Max Casella, will hit theaters on August 29, 2014.

Had Me at Kevin Kline

The man doesn't do much but when he does, it's beautiful and Oscar worthy. Should be a great movie.

Kline looks like Flynn more so than Guy Pearce did.But this movie looks so melodramatic and mawkish.So its bound to get Oscar nods lol.Why can`t they do a movie actually based on Errol Flynn real life story 'My wicked,wicked ways." That is one of the best biography ever written by a movie star.

I honestly don't think he cares much for an Oscar when he goes balls deep in Phoebe Cates every night.

I am glad Kline and Fanning are getting decent roles though.

Kevin Kline is a favorite of mine, and so it's been kind of sad seeing some of the stuff he's been in lately. This at least looks like a good vehicle for his acting chops, and he looks surprisingly at home as Errol Flynn. Then again, he's always at his strongest playing flamboyant, mad, or otherwise larger-than-life characters.
