The script adds to the list of ‘Robin Hood’ projects currently in development.
Could ‘Robin Hood’ be the next iconic character to have his history explored with an edgy origins movie? Well it looks likely, as Deadline reports that studio Lionsgate has acquired the script for Joby Harold’s Robin Hood: Origins, which gives a different take on the famed character.
Kevin Costner is one of the many actors to have portrayed Robin Hood on the big screen
While little is known about the script, Deadline writes that Harold's story is said to be 'an edgier take on the fabled do-gooder who stole from the rich and gave to the poor.’ The film will be produced by Appian Way, alongside Harold and Tory Tunnell through their Safehouse Pictures banner.

A film inspired by the lifestory of Errol Flynn's slain photojournalist son SEAN is to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France next month (May10).
The remains of Sean Flynn are believed to be among those recently uncovered in a mass grave in Cambodia - 30 years after he and a colleague went missing.
The two photographers were covering the Cambodian War for Time magazine when they were believed to have been captured by Khmer Rouge guerrillas.
Motivated by Flynn's story, 21-year-old Brendan Moriarty wrote, produced and directed the war adventure drama, The Road To Freedom, which was shot in Cambodia last year (09).

British actor Orlando Bloom has fulfilled his childhood fantasy of being Errol Flynn while filming a swashbuckling stunt on the set of Pirates Of The Caribbean: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
The 29-year-old was thrilled at the opportunity to mimic big-screen legend Flynn's jump from a mast. During shooting, one scene required Bloom to plunge a dagger into a sail and then slide down it.
The star says, "It was one of my boyhood dreams to copy Flynn. I was harnessed to wires to stop me flying off the sail - but it was tricky.
"I was only 20 feet from the ground, rather than 100. I jumped from the mast and landed on the sail. I didn't even think about it going wrong."

He says, "I always think of Errol Flynn. He looked uncomfortable in a suit but put him in a ridiculous pair of tights, and he looked to the manor born.

In 1938 Robin Hood was a huge success. It added to the Errol Flynn-Olivia de Havilland aura as a leading romantic team (they made six more films together). It also received special attention by using the new and expensive three-strip Technicolor in its cinematography. If you had a chance to see the restored 35mm print that made the rounds at various big-city theaters last August, good for you -- you've experienced what "glorious Technicolor" really is and you're one up on the rest of us. But the new release of The Adventures of Robin Hood on a two-disc DVD special edition might just even the score. It's hard to beat seeing any classic on the big screen, but the sparkling sharpness of this DVD image and the high quality and quantity of the extras almost make up for the lack of big-screen opportunities.
