Hugh Jackman and Jodie Comer are attached to star in the movie “The Death of Robin Hood”.

The project hails from Michael Sarnoski, the director of the critically-acclaimed “Pig” and this summer’s “A Quiet Place: Day One.”

According to the official logline, the movie finds Robin Hood “grappling with his past after a life of crime and murder.” 

However, instead of the merry outlaw seen in certain previous versions of the story like the one portrayed by Errol Flynn, this Robin Hood is “a battleworn loner [who] finds himself gravely injured and in the hands of a mysterious woman, who offers him a chance at salvation.” 

It sounds similar to Richard Lester’s elegiac take on the popular story, “Robin and Marian,” a 1976 movie starring Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn as a middled-aged Robin Hood and Maid Marian.

“The Death of Robin Hood” is set to begin filming in February 2025.

Jackman will next be seen in Ryan Reynolds' “Deadpool & Wolverine.” His other credits include “The Greatest Showman” and his Oscar-nominated role in “Les Miserables.” On stage, he won a Tony Award for his performance in “The Boy From Oz.”

Comer won an Emmy for her work on “Killing Eve” and a Tony Award for her one-woman performance in “Prima Facie.” 

She also starred in Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” alongside Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Comer can next be seen in “The Bikeriders” co-starring with Austin Butler and Tom Hardy.
