Lured by the success of Marvel's The Avengers, Sony Pictures is circling a high-priced pitch for a Robin Hood franchise that's been compared in tone to the Mission: Impossible and Fast and the Furious films.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pitch for Hood from Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott positions Robin Hood and his Merry Men as a sort of the Avengers of the Middle Ages who would appear in interconnected films.
Goodman and Lott are accomplished in genre films both together and separately. They teamed up to develop Lore. which is being directed by David Greene for Warner Bros. Goodman is also rebooting the Underworld franchise, whileLott penned a supernatural film called The Falling, which has Zac Effron attached.
