Fans of Robin Hood are going to get a whole new take on the character, as Lionsgate has set a 2018 release date for a new film about the English folk hero. 

“Kingsman: the Secret Service” star Taron Egerton will step into the role previously played by Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe and Errol Flynn, among others, for “Robin Hood: Origins,” a fresh look at the character’s origin story. The film will be released March 23, 2018.

Jamie Foxx will co-star as Little John, with Eve Hewson playing Marian and “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan playing Robin Hood’s half-brother, Will Scarlett. 

“Robin Hood: Origins” will be directed by Otto Bathurst (“Peaky Blinders,” “Black Mirror”) from a script by Joby Harold. Leonardo DiCaprio is listed as one of the project’s producers.
