/robin-hood-movie-remake-2014-sony/Earlier today, we reported on Sony's upcoming remake of Robin Hood, which the studio acquired in a heated bidding war with several other studios. The movie is based on a pitch from Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter) and Jeremy Lott (Lore), and new details have come forward.
The movie was originally said to be a 'reinvention' of the classic adventure tale. Now, The Hollywood Report reveal that the movie, titled Hood, will create a shared universe much like Marvel's The Avengers. The franchise will focus on a series of movies that revolve around the archer and his band of Merry Men, including Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett. They are being envisioned as a superhero team from England's middle ages.
Hood will be a fast-paced action adventure movie that is being compared to the Fast & Furious and Mission: Impossible franchises. Sources close to the deal say it was bought for $1 million agasint $2 million, with deals still being negotiated.
