Rocket Robin Hood?

08.07.2009by:

Hopefully nothing like the 1966 Krantz Films cartoon, Robin of Sherwood and his merry men might be switching from tights to latex with Warner Bros developing a futuristic version of their tale.

First time director Nicolai Fuglsig has signed on with DARK KNIGHT producer Charles Roven to handle an action-adventure script to be delivered by SPREAD scribe Jason Hall about the titular hero helping the population of a dystopian-future London. Isn't that called V FOR VENDETTA?

"His stunning visual presentation blew me away," Roven told The Hollywood Reporter of Fuglsig. "He has a very clear vision for the film, one that will re-invent and modernize a classic story." The film yet bares no title nor production date, so Ridley Scott can take his time and finish up ROBIN HOOD" href="../index.php?id=27120" target="_blank">his "classic" take, this won't be like the 1991 showdown where the ROBIN HOOD on IMDb" href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102797/" target="_blank">Patrick Bergin version had to yield to Costner and stay out of U.S. theaters.

Extra Tidbit: Can't believe I used to watch that cartoon every time it was on. It was even worse than those barely-moving Marvel ones, AND it had about 3 minutes of story while the theme was replayed 5 times during the show...

Used to watch this...

but this doesnt excite me. It wasnt the best show even when I was a kid (I havent revisited it though, so take it for what it is) and I dont see how it could be a great movie. That being said, since it aint the best known show they might be able to pull off something that surprises me.

Maybe they should dump this and start a script for Camelot 3000. It's a WB property, has King Arthur in the year 3000 fighting aliens invading Earth. Might as well, since every other old comic book series is getting a movie now.

Oh.

I thought this was going to be the announcement that Roger Clemens was taking up acting to play Robin Hood opposite Russell Crowe in Nottingham.
