SONY MAKING 'ROBIN HOOD' EPIC MOVIE FRANCHISE! KERRY WASHINGTON IN 'IS HE THE ONE"! ABC BUYS 'JUVIE' SITCOM, SYFY TURNS 'FIVE GHOSTS' COMIC INTO SF TV SERIES

ROBIN 'HOOD' TO BECOME
HISTORICAL MOVIE FRANCHISE
The biggest news today is that Sony has bought a script for HOOD fast paced historical action franchise in a heated war with other studios! Imagined as a franchise of movies which would each deal with the green archer Robin Hood and his men from Sherwood, these films would each focus on a different character from Little John and Friar Tuck to Will Scarlett with them being presented as a sort of mediaeval superhero team which shares the same universe like in AVENGERS and X MEN! The idea for the script comes from Cory Goodman ('The Last Witch Hunter') and Jeremy Lott ('Lore')! We saw Robin Hood last time in Hollywood four years ago with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett!

ABC BUYS 'JUVIE' COMEDY
In TV news today, ABC has bough comedy JUVIE from Sam Layborne (MICHAEL J FOX SHOW) which will follow a privileged and naive golden boy, who takes a job at a juvenile hall and discovers he has more to learn than to teach.

SyFy will, meanwhile, turn FIVE GHOSTS comic book into TV series following the travels of treasure hunter Fabian Gray and his rare ability to harness the ghosts of five literary characters, referred to as “The Wizard”, “The Archer”, “The Detective”, “The Samurai” and “The Vampire”.

KERRY WASHINGTON

Meanwhile, in the news from the romantic genre, it seems that gorgeous SCANDAL star Kerry Washington will move into the movie world after taking the lead role in IS HE THE ONE romantic comedy. Envisioned in the form of flashbacks the movie will begin with a bride (Kerry Washington) getting ready to walk down the wedding aisle. The movie than goes on to describe the three major relationships the bride has been in throughout her life. As her relationship history unfolds, it will remain unclear which of these three suitors will be waiting for her at the alter until the very end. MGM movie will be helmed by Malcolm D. Lee ('The Best Man Holiday')!

  1. I'm not sure about this Robin Hood adaptation as the Superhero thing is getting a bit tired.

    1. this is not a typical superhero film, dear, just the similar concept in the way that the characters will be sharing the same universe

  2. I imagine the remaking of Robin Hood is going to be good. After all, there's lots of colourful characters for the writers to get their teeth into. And who doesn't love Robin Hood? :)

    1. I hope they do a good casting, because they're screwing up with KING ARTHUR franchise big time in that department.... I loved the casting in BBC Robin Hood series...

    2. Yes, that is a terrible shame. To say the least...

    3. I generally hate most of the castings done in recent years... the new generation of popular actors is just terrible...

    I enjoy Robin Hood stories and movies.

  6. I don't know how well they are going to do with the Robin Hood (though I love the concept) but if Robin is as scary looking as the drawing, I won't be tuning in.

  8. OOH I like the premise of the Kerry Washington movie. Like that Ryan Reynolds movie with the daughter from 10 years or so ago--can't remember the name of it.

    Regarding your comment about my blog link on my Google page. It's a little complicated. I have 2 Google Plus accounts. The link to my blog is listed on the About page of the Google account it is associated with. I cannot list it on the other account. But what I did, was provide the link to my website. The blog can be found through the website if you scroll to the bottom of the page (on the right).

  11. Is the One kinda takes a bit from the movie Definitely, Maybe with the past relationships and the guess work. I really want to see this Fabian channel the ghost of a vampire. Seriously, I want to see this done. Hope the Robin Hood plan pans out. You never know.
