Irish star Eve Hewson, who is the daughter of U2 frontman Bono and Ali Hewson, has said she is looking forward to putting her own stamp on Maid Marion in director Otto Bathurst’s movie adaptation of Robin Hood.
The actress will appear alongside Kingsman: The Secret Service’s Taron Egerton in the “gritty revisionist take” retelling of the Robin Hood legend and said she is “excited” to take on the leading role.
Speaking to Total Film magazine, the 24-year-old Dubliner said: “I read with Taron and he’s incredible. “Marian was a pioneer. All I can really say is I’m excited to give it a crack and I think it’s going to be a new take on the role.”
Egerton will play Robin as he arrives back from the Crusades and begins to recruit his band of Merry Men when he discovers corruption across Sherwood Forest and Nottingham.
Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders) will direct from a script by Joby Harold, with production slated to begin on Robin Hood: Origins in the next few months. Continue reading Eve Hewson not daunted by ‘new take’ on Robin Hood
