It’s 1991 all over again!

Hollywood is greasing the wheels on a second- the first, starring Russell Crowe in the lead role, will be out next year – ‘Robin Hood’ film.

This latest incarnation of the literary hero is said to feature a futuristic spin. Atlas Entertainment and Hollywood Gang will produce the untitled saga for Warner Bros, with commercials director Nicolai Fuglsig, who pitched the project, directing.

The Hollywood Reporter says few plot details have been revealed about the new Robin Hood, but it will be set in a dystopian London and center on a band of thieves whose activities restore hope to the city’s embattled population. Producers describe it as “a futuristic action adventure” that will be “both inspired by and pay homage to the legend of Robin Hood.”

Fuglsig is the man that convinced Atlas and Hollywood Gang to invest in the project.

“His stunning visual presentation blew me away,” said producer Charles Roven, whose Atlas is also developing the screenplay “Bleederjack” with Fuglsig. “He has a very clear vision for the film, one that will re-invent and modernize a classic story.”

Ridley Scott is now shooting his version of Robin Hood for Universal and Imagine.
