Huh? A sequel to “Robin Hood”? Directly Ridley Scott is down with it, and even has the whole shebang mapped out. Opines Scott to WENN:
“It is the beginnings of how the man becomes known as Robin the Hood. You don’t really get that until the last few minutes when you realise, ‘Ah this is who he is.’ Let’s say we might presume there’s a sequel. Honestly, I thought, ‘Why not have the potential for a sequel, particularly if it is a genre that you absolutely love and has never been fully explored?’ If there were to be a sequel, you would have a constant enemy throughout, King John, and you would follow his reign of 17 years. The signing of the Magna Carta could be Robin’s final act.”
Of course one should keep in mind that actors and filmmakers always talk about potential sequels to movies that have yet to open, and it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll happen. And remember, Ridley Scott and his “Robin Hood” star Russell Crowe have been talking about doing a “Gladiator” sequel/prequel since, well, 2000, so there you go.
