Jaime Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) is in talks with Robin Hood: Origins about a major role.
If Dornan signs on the dotted line he would play Will Scarlett. The film is set to be directed by Otto Bathurst with Job Harold supplying the script. The film follows Robin as he returns from the Crusade to Sherwood forest and the beginning of his fight against the corruption he finds at home.
Taron Egerton plays the title role, Eve Hewson will depict Maid Marian, and Jamie Foxx will portray Little John. In the books, Scarlett is the half-brother of Robin Hood who is a member of Little John’s group of Merry Men.
