Dec 8 2010Wachoswkis Want Will Smith To Play Cool, Urban Robin Hood

will-smith-scientist-legend.jpg

With Ridley Scott's version of Robin Hood still as much in our minds as it ever managed to get, Warner Bros. is already set to give the premise another shot with "a modern, urban take on the Robin Hood myth" to be written and directed by the Wachowskis, and which sounds awful. Will Smith has reportedly already been contacted about playing this heroic robber of the gentrifiers, which I'll take to mean he's already negotiating to get his son in this as Will Scarlet. Make it a real Pursuit of Wealthyness.

It's unclear how this project will affect the Matrix directors' CN-9--their gay love story/George W. Bush assassination tale told from the perspective of a future archaeologist investigating the modern day war in Iraq--but it's a pretty safe bet this street-style Robin Hood will come out first, as no one's been too keen to finance the other thing for some reason. The two were also rumored to be shooting an adaptation of Cloud Atlas, and it really isn't certain what's happening with that now, either. And are they ever going to make another film that will so readily lend itself to getting a screen saver adaptation as The Matrix? We'll just have to wait and see.

"a modern, urban take on the Robin Hood myth"

Uh..25 years too late, and Mario Van Peebles short

Pure garbage. The Wachowskis suck.

more like robin IN THA HOOD

ZING

A Cloud Atlas movie? Sweet! A Cloud Atlas movie directed by the Wachowskis? Eeeeeeeyah no. Ideally, each segment would be handled by a different (non-hacky) director. That would rule.

Also, I hereby proclaim that any "modern, urban" take on Robin Hood needs to have Little John played by, well, Li'l Jon.

Did Robin Hood pimp out his eight year old daughter?

Robinhood played by a money-grubbing whore? Is that ironic or just sad?
