New Robin Hood film will see hero suffer PTSD after returning from Crusades.
For some, Robin Hood will forever be Errol Flynn swashbuckling his way through Sherwood Forest. For others, Kevin Costner’s pairing with Alan Rickman’s Sheriff of Nottingham was simply unimprovable.
A new version of Robin Hood, destined for release this year, is to reveal a rather different side to the beloved outlaw: a “seriously militarized anarchist revolutionary” returning from an unjust Crusade with PTSD.
The 2018 Robin Hood, played by British actor Taron Egerton, will see a hardened crusader believing he has been deceived into fighting for a “bull—t” cause, returning to England full of resentment.
There, as he observes a “fractured” society, he is moved to his famous ambition to steal from the rich to give to the poor after observing the inequalities in society.
