‘Robin Hood: Origins’ wants Jamie Dornan.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 34-year-old actor is currently circling a role in the upcoming ‘Robin Hood: Origins’ - Lionsgate’s new take on the classic British folk hero.
“Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan in in final negotiations to join the cast of Robin Hood: Origins, Lionsgate’s take on the British archer-thief who stole from the rich and gave to the poor.”
Jamie Dornan is perhaps best known for the role of Christian Grey in the erotic drama, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, but has also taken a starring role in BBC’s hit drama, ‘The Fall’ where he plays serial killer, Paul Spector.
But what role will he take in ‘Robin Hood: Origins’?
“Dornan will play Will Scarlett, known as the member of the band of Merry Men who is the hot-headed wearer of fine clothes and best swordsman of the bunch. In this version, however, he is Marian’s husband, who will be none too happy when he learns that she loves the outlaw.”
‘Robin Hood: Origins’ stars Taron Egerton as Robin Hood with Jamie Foxx as Little John, and Eve Hewson as Maid Marian.
Otto Bathurst is directing, based on a screenplay by Joby Harold. Shooting is due to begin on location in Budapest in January 2017.
‘Robin Hood: Origins’ heads to cinemas in 2017.
