Since it’s been a couple of years since we had a Robin Hood blockbuster, Lionsgate is firming up its plans for bringing another one to theaters. According to Deadline, the studio revealed that it’s going to release Robin Hood: Origins on March 23, 2018.

Lest you haven’t been able to keep track of all the Robin Hood projects in some stage of development, this one comes from Joby Harold, who also slapped together Guy Ritchie’s upcoming King Arthur movie. It is, we are loathe to report, a “gritty” take on the character who robs from the rich to give to the poor. Kingsman’s Taron Egerton plays the titular role, and his Merry Men include a pair of Jamies: Foxx as Little John and Dornan as Will Scarlett. The Knick’s Eve Hewson is Maid Marian.
