Kingsman Star, Taron Egerton Is The Prince of Thieves In The New ‘Rohin Hood ‘Remake
Entertainment Weekly has just debuted the first official look at the upcoming Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood remake, showing the first glimpse at Taron Egerton this time around as the Prince of Thieves. The photos also feature other co-stars such as, Jamie Foxx (Baby Driver) as Little John and Eve Hewson (The Knick) as Main Marian.
Bathurst teased his classic character in the movie, saying: “You don’t become a legend for 800 years if you’ve just stolen a few bags of money from rich people to give to the poor. In my mind, Robin Hood was this sort of seriously militarized anarchist revolutionary, a freedom thinker and a truth seeker. And the more I got into the story, it just became startling how utterly relevant it is to what’s going on in society now.”
Egerton added : “I was approached not long after the first Kingsman movie had come out, and my initial response, to be totally honest, was ‘Why?’ [But] Otto told me he wanted to do something entirely revisionist, something that can’t be tied down to a medieval universe. The first act of the movie, these scenes crusading in Syria, were written like something from The Hurt Locker. It was fantastic, and that was enough to convince me.”
