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.
