Rocket Robin Hood?
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."

|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...|
