Eurobin Hood

15 May

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

a new Robin Hood- Origins movie arrows our way!

Welshman Taron Egerton (“Kingsman: The Secret Service”) dons slacks instead of tights, Jamie Foxx is Little John and Jamie Dornan alias Will Scarlett will paint the sheriffs mean men in 50 shades of black and blue. Otto Bathurst of “Peaky Blinders” fame is the director. Here are some first impressions from location at the Croation World Heritage City of Dubrovnik.

      Many merry men tried to walk in Flynn`s footsteps, but couldn`t fill his hat.

    Jamie Foxx as Little John? Sounds like more Hollywood revisionism. They’d better hope it goes over bigger at the box office than Guy Ritchie’s recent “medieval mess” as it’s been called, King Arthur, Legend of the Sawed Off Shotgun.…

        I get your point but Robin Hood is in the public domain, which means he’s a world-famous action hero who anyone can use to create a movie, book, opera, etc. If James Bond was in the public domain there would be a million different versions of those, too. Not always welcome but we all love Robin Hood. Someone with a vision will get it “right”.
        Also, I think the Sean Connery-Audrey Hepburn film is the sequel that Errol and Olivia never made. robin_and_marian_ver3.jpg

          excellent points all, zacal. I concurreth. let the free market decideth.

          Robin and Marion is indeed a beautiful film, Sean and Audrey a wonderful pairing. Yes, wouldn’t it have been sensational to have seen Errol and Olivia reunite for such a film before Flynn shot his last arrow.

            btw, if Sean appears in just one more Robin Hood, he’ll tie Little John Alan Hale!
