    Just noticed it on IMDB - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4532826/

    Well, hoping it will be good.

    Taron Egerton is a really good actor BUT I honestly don't think he'd be a good match for Robin Hood.

    Also surprised there are no credits written up for graphic designers yet. It's pretty late in production so I guess it should already be there unless it's the same case as with Pirates of the Caribbean (concept artists work on graphic props/paper props).

    Ugh, how many times are they gonna try to pull off Robin Hood? Jamie Fox as little John....Oh come on now. These studios heads must be doing some killer drugs these days.

    It's almost as if the studios are so obsessed with "equal representation" that they are willing to take our Suspension of Disbelief and stretch it like it's taffy on the machine.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Jamie Foxx. He's a great actor. However, unless they have A DAMNED good explanation as to why Little John is black, then it will remain firmly in my "Cast to appear progressive and inclusive" spot.

    The way Hollywood overdoes Robin Hood decade after decade, you'd think they might have tried to venture outside medieval England more often. The story could be set in almost any time & place.

    Wow, Hollywood just keeps on failing.

    Do these people even remember that Ben-Hurt and King Arthurt just flopped? No one wants these 'faux-historical' pieces.

    I think this RH movie has been in gear for a while already. But the twin failures of BH and KA are probably making RH's producers very nervous.


    I would rather see straightforward traditional retellings of these stories than all the hip 'spin' being put on them, if they are going to stick to the traditional settings. Hollywood is always selling a "fresh take on the story" to kids who have never seen the previous take.

    Are we sure they aren't doing Robin Hood in contemporary, or futuristic, times? Seems to have been a winning strategy for THE MUMMY (2017)… :-\

    Maybe Maid Marian can be that Swedish Princess from The Kingsmen. Then she can tell Robin, "if you save all of Britain, we can do it in the a-hole…" [It was creepy and awkward then, and it'll be creepy and awkward here too.]

    Then I recommend they downshift to a lower gear while applying the brake....
