Ms. Marvel Series Coming To Disney+

Margot Robbie To Star In Marian

Hollywood just can't get enough of Robin Hood. Not content with several self-described "new" spins on the character in development, and Taron Egerton donning the Lincoln Green for one movie in production, yet another is joining the fray, with a big name attached: Margot Robbie is aiming to star in Marian.

Pete Barry wrote the spec script which, as you might be able to figure out from the title, focuses on the woman usually known as Maid Marian. Far from being the love interest in this one, Marian is being described as a cross between Game Of Thrones and Braveheart, though the description makes it sound more of a piece with the Joan Of Arc story. The concept is this: after Marian sees Robin killed before her eyes, she swears to pick up his cause. Training to become a fighter, she also rises to a position of leadership and eventually legend as she commands the fight against a conspiracy to conquer England. Robbie could certainly do this one justice, and it would give her something new to play. The big question is how – beyond the basic hook – it separates itself from the 500 other Hood projects out there.

Producers Donald De Line and Amy Pascal have picked this one up for Sony, and we can expect the studio to push this one into development quickly, likely leaping over the other Robin project it had percolating.

Robbie, who has also started to produce some of her films, has a few movies on the way, including the still-untitled A.A. Milne biopic, new thriller Terminal, I, Tonya and Peter Rabbit.

Disney Says Bye To Spider-Man In Any Upcoming Films For Now

Deadline is reporting Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

This comes at a moment when the last two films Kevin Feige produced broke all-time records — Disney’s Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home this week surpassed the James Bond film Skyfall to become the all time highest grossing film for Sony Pictures.

Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON In Sacramento #RunBrittanyRun

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON On August 22nd at 7:00 PM In Sacramento.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
