Disney Planning A “Robin Hood” Franchise

Disney Pictures has acquired the Brandon Barker spec “Nottingham & Hood” with plans to turn it into a potential adventure franchise launcher that fits in with Disney’s global brand.

The revisionist take on the Robin Hood legend is said to have a “Pirates of the Caribbean” style tone. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman will produce through their The Picture Company label.

The project follows in the wake of Sony Pictures picking up Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott’s script pitch about the character earlier this year.
