Apparently there’s a Robin Hood-inspired story floating around Hollywood that’s so good, Sony’s willing to pay out the nose for it. How much? A LOT.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, writers Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott’s spec script Hood has some appealing catchphrases like “universe” and “Avengers,” which means they’re looking to make a “series of movies focusing on the outlaw archer and his band of Merry Men: Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett.”
So how much is Sony willing to pay for the story of the “Avengers of England’s Middle Ages meets Mission: Impossible meets Fast & Furious“? Sources are reporting that it’s $1 million against $2 million with producing deals also in negotiation.
I do not understand how Goodman and Lott are going to make a franchise out of this at all. Does this mean we’re going to get standalone films starring Little John or get a origin story film about the Sheriff of Nottingham?
I’m so bored I can’t even say “unless it’s like the Disney animated film or the Mel Brooks spoof, not interested,” because that’s just it: I’m NOT INTERESTED. I’d rather sit in a room across from Shia LaBeouf wearing a paper bag on his head for 2 hours than watch another Robin Hood film.
Cory Goodman is also in the midst of rebooting the Underworld franchise, so why not just stick with that instead?
What say you? Has Hollywood FINALLY killed our interest for the man in tights?
