Margot Robbie is set to take on the myth of Robin Hood in Pete Berry‘s script Marian. Robin Hood is one of those classic tales that has been told a hundred times and will be retold hundreds of thousands of times before the sun burns out in the sky. This time according to the title, Marian will play a much bigger role in what is called a serious and gritty script. Check out the details below.
Here’s the general idea of Marian:
After a conspiracy to conquer England in which the love of her life Robin Hood dies before her eyes, Marian picks up the cause to lead her people into a pivotal war. She comes to power, charging into a battle that will not only decide the fate of the kingdom, but that will see her don the mantle of the man she loved. In the process, she rises as a legend herself.
There’s still a ton of behind the scenes work to be done before Marian starts shooting. There’s a director to find, a release date to determine, a bunch of casting, and other sundry Hollywood stuff, but taking the story of Marian beyond what is usual should be a lot of fun.
