Margot Robbie To Star In ‘Robin Hood’ Spin-Off ‘Marian’

Margot Robbie Marian
While Sony Pictures was considering starting a shared universe of Robin Hood films, plans seem to have changed significantly with the announcement of Marian, a film set after Robin Hood’s death. The picture will star Suicide Squad‘s lead actress Margot Robbie.

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that first-time screenwriter Pete Barry will pen the drama, revolving around a new take on the Robin Hood legend. The film will follow the exploits of Maid Marian, Robin Hood’s true love, after the heroic thief’s demise. A heartbroken Marian decides to honor his memory by taking up his quest to rob the rich and give to the poor as her own, leading her people as a war breaks out. The film is set to be produced by Amy Pascal and Donald De Line. Rock Shaink will co-produce through Romark Entertainment, possibly alongside LuckyChap Entertainment, Robbie’s own production company.

On an incidental note, Robbie and Pascal were originally set to collaborate on the Barbie movie before the film’s delay cut into Robbie’s existing commitments, causing her to leave the picture. She was replaced by Amy Schumer. Robbie’s current commitments include Gotham City Sirens from Warner Brothers, I, Tonya from Miramax, Peter Rabbit from Sony, and a currently-untitled biopic based on Winnie The Pooh creator A. A. Milne from Fox Searchlight.

    Not even the traditional robin hood concept can be made to work on the most basic sense these days, what bona fide idiot in hollywood thinks that flipping the premise will work?

    you are basically fated to lose when at least 4-5 different interpretations of robin hood exist in pop culture, ( green arrow being the most obvious rip off / inspired of those,) And they are ALL better than the original robin hood story.
