Thanks to his work in the two Kingsmen films, Taron Egerton is no stranger to big films, and with Robin Hood he’s taking on an iconic role that was previously played by Errol Flynn, Kevin Costner, and Russell Crowe. Jamie Foxx co-stars as Robin’s mentor and conspirator Little John in the epic adventure.
“It’s a myth that obviously everyone is familiar with,” said Egerton. “But one also that’s really begging (for) a revision and exploration of the man rather than sort of a mythic figure. (The script) is so colloquial and although it’s set in a universe that’s set in Medieval England, it has a lot of relevance and there are sort of themes that feel really pertinent to today.”
