“Robin Hood”, the man who steals the rich to give to the poor, returns to the big screen.
The Welsh actor Taron Egerton plays the prince of thieves, who discovers a kingdom in which corruption is the currency.
Jamie Fox, best known for his character as Ray Charles, will play the role of Little, while Eve Hewson will play the role of Lady Marian.
For the director Otto Bathurst, although the adventures of the legendary and heroic outlaw have been taken to the cinema repeatedly, his story is still very current:
“Wherever there is corruption, greed, oppression and injustice, we need “Robin Hood”, we need heroes, the maiden Marian and people who oppose the system, who oppose the corrupt, who challenges them and says” enough! “. And we all know that at the present time there is a lot of that, so I thought, let’s go back to that idea, that myth, that metaphor and bring it to the 21st century. “
A movie about “Robin Hood” is a challenge. Many successful versions have been made. The one made in 2010 under the direction of Ridley Scott exceeded 280 million euros at the box office and Kevin Reynolds’ 1091 movie “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” with Kevin Costner even billed 341 million.
