“Robin Hood” chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff. With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.
The future Mr Chekov (Star Trek) Anton Yelchin is in negotiations to star as the post-apocalyptic warrior Kyle Reese in the upcoming fourth ‘Terminator’ feature says The Hollywood Reporter.
Reese was previously played by Michael Biehn in the 1984 original who travelled back in time to save Sarah Connor from being killed.
Terminator 4 will pick up with John Connor (Christian Bale), now in his 30s, fighting desperately to save a decimated civilization against machines that have taken control.
McG is helming the project.
If Yelchin gets the role, May 09 will be a big month for the actor starring in two of 2009’s biggest summer releases – J.J Abrams’ ‘ Star trek;’ and ‘Terminator 4’.
TIDBIT: Yelchin immigrated to the United States from Russia with his figure-skater parents when he was 6 months old
