Robin Hood release date announced by Summit
Summit Entertainment has announced that Robin Hood (previously titled “Robin Hood: Origins”), their new take on the legend, will open on March 23, 2018 in wide release and in IMAX.
A war-hardened Crusader and a Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure from director Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders). Packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance, Robin Hood is a never before seen story of how Robin Hood became the icon and legend as we know him today.
The cast includes Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle) as the title hero, with Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained, Ray) as Little John, Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) as WIll Scarlet (a member of the Merry Men), Eve Hewson (Bridge of Spies) as Maid Marion, and Paul Anderson in an undisclosed role.
Described as having a “gritty tone,” the film finds Robin Hood returning from The Crusades to discover a Sherwood Forest rife with corruption and evil. Teaming with a band of outlaws, he takes matters into his own hands to set things right, with very little merry-making along the way.
Directed by Otto Bathurst from a screenplay by Joby Harold, Robin Hood is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Basil Iwanyk, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold.
