Margot Robbie has scored the title role in “Marian,” a new female-centric spin on the “Robin Hood” legend for Sony Pictures and possibly LuckyChap Entertainment. Donald De Line, Rock Shank and Amy Pascal will produce from a script by Pete Barry.
The story unfolds after the death of Robin Hood, the love of her life. The maiden then picks up his cause to lead her people into a pivotal war that will not only decide the fate of the kingdom, but also see her don the mantle of the man she loved. In the process, she becomes a legend herself.
“Marian” is not tied to Lionsgate’s currently filming “Robin Hood: Origins” project starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx and Jamie Dornan which is set for a March 2018 debut. A futuristic sci-fi spin on “Robin Hood” is also slated to begin shooting later this year.
