Robin Hood Steals from Self, Gives to Bored
Long story short: The Wachowski brothers siblings, Andy and LarryLana Wachowski, are in the early stages of adapting a new Robin Hood film. The “twist”? It’s going to be set in a modern, urban society, which I guess screams “black Robin Hood”. Hence: Will Smith.
So let’s look at what we have: Will Smith in a modern take of the Robin Hood tale? Sounds fine…if it were 1998. Honestly: We really don’t need another Robin Hood film, modern, urban society or not. Ridly Scott already released his “true” version of the story earlier this year, and while it wasn’t a terrible film, it really felt like I had seen it all before. And Will Smith has so many movies in the works that remind us how awesome he was a few years back, it’s ridiculous. Here’s a quick list from IMDB: Bad Boys 3, I, Robot 2, Independence Day 2, Men in Black 3, I Am Legend 2, and I kid you not, Independence Day 3.
As for the Wachowski brothers siblings, Andy and LarryLana Wachowski, I gave up on you guys gentlemen people long before the credits for The Matrix Reloaded started rolling.
