Jamie Dornan

Robin Hood: Origins Adds Jamie Dornan To Cast

Fifty Shades of Grey and Anthropoid‘s Jamie Dornan will play a member of Robin Hood’s Merry Men in Robin Hood: Origins.

The specific Merry Man that the actor will play is Will Scarlett, known for his sense of style as well as his marriage to Maid Marian. Dornan will act opposite such names as Eve Hewson, Jamie Foxx, and Taron Egerton, who will portray the titular hero.

In addition to Robin Hood: Origins, viewers can also expect to see Dornan in Fifty Shades Darker in the near future:

Described as an origin story in the vein of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, Robin Hood: Origins aims for a new take on the folk hero. The story finds Robin Hood (played by Kingsman: The Secret Service‘s Taron Egerton) returning from The Crusades to discover a Sherwood Forest rife with corruption and evil. Teaming with a band of outlaws, he takes matters into his own hands to set things right, with very little merry-making along the way. Eve Hewson (Bridge of Spies) will play Maid Marion.

Said to feature a “gritty” tone, the script for Robin Hood: Origins hails from Joby Harold, who recently penned Guy Ritchie’s revisionist take on Camelot titled Knights of the Roundtable. The film will be produced by Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson along with Harold and Tory Tunnell’s Safe House Prods.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
