Jamie Foxx Is Playing Little John In ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS

Deadline is reporting that Jamie Foxx is being tapped to star in director Otto Bathurst's Robin Hood: Origins from Lionsgate. The film is one of four differently-toned Robin Hood titles from seperate studios expected to arrive in the next several years, here with Foxx joining actor Taron Egerton in the title role with actress Eve Hewson as Maid Marian.

Knights Of The Roundtable scribe Joby Harold is providing the script which sees Egerton as Robin Hood who forms a band of outlaws to rid Sherwood Forest of the evil and corruption he's discovered upon his return from the Crusades. In courting his Merry Men, he meets Foxx who will portray a battle-hardened yet war-weary Little John who distrusts Robin at first since fighting on opposite sides during the Crusades, but grows to trust him over time.

Filming will commence once Egerton fulfills his Kingsman sequel duties this Spring. Harold is also producing the film through Safe House along with Tory Tunnel, Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson.
