Ridley Scott is hoping to make a sequel to his upcoming Robin Hood film.
The director told reporters that his Russell Crowe led medieval epic leaves the door open for a follow-up feature.
He said: “It is the beginnings of how the man becomes known as Robin the Hood. You don’t really get that until the last few minutes. When you realise that ‘Ah, this is who he is’.
“Let’s say we might presume there’s a sequel. Honestly, I thought why not have the potential for a sequel, particularly if it is a genre that you absolutely love and has never been fully explored?”
Discussing any potential storyline for a second Hood picture, Scott said: “If there were to be a sequel to Robin Hood, you would have a constant enemy throughout, King John, and you would follow his reign of 17 years, and the signing of Magna Carta could be Robin’s final act.”
