There are many different characters in Hollywood who we always seem to return to time and time again, giving us different versions and different variations of the same character, and in turn the other characters from within that story. One such character, who has appeared on both the big screen and the small screen many different times for many years now, is the classic British hero Robin Hood.
Well, we are now preparing to get yet another Robin Hood story coming to the big screen, this time with the talented British actor Taron Egerton starring in the lead role. We have no doubt that this latest Robin Hood film will have plenty of differences to those previous versions, and Taron has been teasing what we can expect from the new Robin Hood movie, insisting that it is going to be a lot darker than we are used to.
Egerton was talking to the guys over at Screen Rant, when he said to them, "I think it will be less self-reverential than the Robin Hoods that have come before. I think the problem with Robin Hood sometimes is that ... I love the Kevin Costner one and I think there were some great moments in the Russell Crowe one as well, but they're very, very, very 'Robin Hood-y'. Ours is less Robin Hood-y. It's grittier, it's darker, it's a Robin Hood for the 21st Century. If you've seen 'Peaky Blinders', you'll know something of the tone of it as it's the same director."
As well as starring Taron Egerton as Robin Hood, the rest of the cast will also include Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck, Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, Ben Mendelsohn as Sheriff of Nottingham, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet, and Jamie Foxx as Little John. Robin Hood: Origins is set to hit the big screen on September 21, 2018.
