Guy Ritchie's Robin Hood: Origins becomes 3rd Robin Hood film in development

If you're a fan of the man in green who loves nothing more than firing off a couple of arrows all in the name of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, then re-organize your communist agenda as there are 3 Robin Hood films in the works! The latest comes from Lionsgate in the form of ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS. As of now, Guy Ritchie is set to direct a script by Joby Harold in what's said to be a grittier take on the famed hero. It seems Ritchie is a fan of Harold's work, as they're also working on KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: KING ARTHUR for Warner Bros.

For those keeping track, Sony also has HOOD in the works, which is said to be in the vein of FAST AND THE FURIOUS and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. Meanwhile at the house of mouse, Disney is brewing up NOTTINGHAM AND HOOD, which will be PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN in nature. It's common for rival studios to compete with their projects (JUNGLE BOOK and JUNGLE BOOK: ORIGINS, for example), although this many in such a short time span from Ridley Scott's 2010 effort is a little ridiculous. I suppose with odds like these, one of 'em has to be good, right?

You can check out Guy Ritchie's next directorial effort, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., in theaters August 14, 2015.

Prince of Thieves

They'll never top Prince of Thieves, I don't care what the Costner haters say, or how terrible Christian Slater's accent was, that movie fucking rocked!

One of my favourites too! Morgan Freeman and Alan Rickman make up for any other flaws that film has!

The ONLY Robin Hood movie that has interested me since Men In Tights

Was when Ridley Scott's Robin Hood movie was going to be from the Sheriff of Nottingham's perspective and Russell Crowe was going to be both the Sheriff and Robin Hood,

Finally, *another* Robin Hood movie about Robin Hood before he became Robin Hood! I often find that the very best stories featuring mythical heroes are the ones that take place *before* the actual stories that made them so legendary in the first place!

In other news, Hollywood continues to suck harder than a crack-addicted Galactus...

Ridley Scott's Robin Hood was terrible, I couldn't even finish watching it. A Guy Ritchie version if it's done in vein like his Sherlock Holmes movies, then I am game, those movies were awesome & fun.

How about a prequel to ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS? I'd watch that.

Nobody wants to make a William Tell movie? I'd rather see that.

So he's directing a new take on King Arthur AND Robin Hood? That's cool. I just hope we actually get one more Sherlock film out of him and that it is sooner then later since Downey Jr and Law aren't getting any younger.

Isnt this suppose to set up another cinematic universe. Like Little John, Robin Hood, Will Scarlett, Friar Tuck all getting their own movies and then meeting up for "The Merry Men" or something like that. Im not knocking shared universe franchises, i love the idea. I just doubt it'll match the critical or financial success of Marvel. I want this to be good, but i dont think it will be. So Which of these studios is setting up the franchise?

and no, im not confusing this with the King Arthur

Huh?

Wasn't Ridley Scott's version a "grittier take?" We've already seen that.

What are the odds one (or any) of these will end up being any good?
