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.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
