The Wachowskis steal from the rich for a modern take on Robin Hood
Just last week, Halle Berry made it sound like she'd be making a movie with THE MATRIX makers next year.
But the Wachowskis suddenly seem to have a full plate, since they're also working on HOOD, a "modern, urban take on the Robin Hood myth," according to THR.
The duo will direct the Warner Bros. project which is, unsurprisingly, "shrouded in secrecy." But it will obviously be a stylish contemporary twist on the legend of an outlaw and his jovial comrades who redistribute wealth, and in a different manner than Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe's recent pricey variation of the tale.
The Wachowskis apparently already penned a script, and put the feelers out for an appropriate hero, with Will Smith being rumored as a possibility.
Whether this project impacts their CLOUD ATLAS adaptation is unknown. Their clandestine futuristic cinéma vérité gay war romance COBALT NEURAL 9 also seems to be on the back burner for the moment as it continues to seek funding.
