The Wachowskis To Write And Direct A Modern Robin Hood image
When you consider who the director was, Ridley Scott's Robin Hood should have been a lot better than it was. Instead, what audiences received was a fairly humdrum affair. There hasn't been a good Robin Hood flick since Robin Hood: Men In Tights in 1993 and that was a parody. We are long overdue for a good one and now the Wachowskis are taking a crack at it. THR reports that the Matrix siblings will tackle the myth next with Hood, a "modern, urban" take on the classic story. Set to write and direct, the pair has already begun reaching out to actors to play the lead with Will Smith's name being whispered. Joel Silver, who worked with the Wachowskis on The Matrix films and Speed Racer, will produce. The brother and sister are currently working on their film Cobalt Neutral 9, though the project has been slowed by financing issues.

While I like this idea, I can't say that I love it. The "modern, urban" thing has been done to death, but if ts the medium that the directors require to tell the story right than I'm not going to complain. Two requests, though: keep the pace active and don't include any songs from Bryan Adams on the soundtrack.
