“Robin Hood” will be getting a futuristic makeover courtesy of the producers of The Dark Knight and 300 as well as Warner Bros., where a new take on the classic tale has been set up, says the Risky Biz Blog.
Atlas Entertainment and Hollywood Gang will produce the untitled saga, while commercials director Nicolai Fuglsig, who pitched the project, has signed on to direct. Jason Hall will write the screenplay.
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.”
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce via their Atlas banner, while Gianni Nunnari will produce via his Hollywood Gang shingle. Craig Flores of Hollywood Gang will executive produce.
