Kevin Kline is attached to star as Errol Flynn in the indie biopic "The Last of Robin Hood" at Killer Films says Variety.

The story is based on Flynn's last days before he died of a heart attack at age 50, and his relationship with 17 year-old actress Beverly Aadland - a girl allegedly seduced by Flynn when she was only 15.

She eventually grew to love him and co-starred with him in his last film "Cuban Rebel Girls." Susan Sarandon is attached to co-star as Beverly's stage mother Florence Aadland who lived vicariously through her daughter.

"Quinceanera" helmers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland will direct from their own original screenplay. Christine Vachon, Pam Koffler and Maggie Malina will produce, and shooting is slated to kick off in January.
