Lionsgate has chosen to direct the movie "Robin Hood: The Beginning", which will tell the back story of the famous English ballads about the robber from Sherwood Forest.
According to Deadline, it will be Otto Buferst, who previously directed the movie "Margot" and took part in the work on the series "Peaky Blinders". The studio aims to make a movie in the spirit of the story of the formation of Batman, which was presented to the audience by Christopher Nolan. According to the plot, the main character returns from the Crusade and finds his homeland at the mercy of corruption and evil. He has no choice but to gather a band of desperate brave souls and restore order in the vicinity of Sherwood Forest.
The draft script was prepared by Joby Harold, who previously worked with Guy Ritchie on a movie dedicated to another hero of British folklore - King Arthur. The movie will be shot by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way studio. If the first movie is successful, Lionsgate will most likely build an entire movie franchise around it.
The studio is committed to getting the project into production as soon as possible, as other Hollywood movie companies such as Walt Disney also plan to make movies about the Sherwood Forest outlaw.
