Coming off of two Kingsmen movies and Eddie the Eagle, Taron Egerton has a chance to take one step closer to superstardom with Robin Hood. Egerton will be playing the iconic title character in director Otto Bathurst’s gritty retelling of his legendary story. For Egerton, taking the role was an easy decision, especially knowing it would give him a chance to work with Bathurst.
Egerton’s co-stars include Jamie Foxx and Jamie Dornan from the Fifty Shades series, and his love interest, Maid Marian, is played by Eve Hewson, the daughter of U2’s Bono. Robin Hood will open in theaters on November 21.
