Robin Hood follows the story of a war-hardened Crusader and a Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure. Packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance, which is a never before seen story of how our titular hero became the icon and legend as we know him today.

The cast includes Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret ServiceEddie the Eagle) as the title hero, with Jamie Foxx (Django UnchainedRay) as Little John, Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) as Will Scarlet, Eve Hewson (Bridge of Spies) as Maid Marion, Tim Minchin (Californication) as Friar Tuck, and Paul Anderson (Peaky BlindersThe Revenant) as Guy of Gisborne.

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.

Robin Hood is directed by Otto Bathurst (Peaky BlindersBlack Mirror) from a screenplay by Ben Chandler and David James Kelly. The film is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Basil Iwanyk, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold.
