There's talk in the trades about not one, but TWO different movies based on the Robin Hood mythology - and they are both being produced by Warner Bros.
And the second Robin Hood is going to be futuristic in nature. The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Business Blog explains the details:
Few plot details have been revealed about the new Robin Hood, but it will be set in a dystopian London and center on a band of thieves whose activities restore hope to the city’s embattled population. Producers describe it as "a futuristic action adventure” that will be "both inspired by and pay homage to the legend of Robin Hood."
Hmmm...art imitating life, perhaps? Or maybe its a subtle poke in the ribs to get people to get up off their asses and stand up against the oppression that is going on around them. Of course, the studios would never get behind that idea.
But its a nice thought.
