NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 11, 2018) (REUTERS) – The classical tale of “Robin Hood%20Hood&redirect=yes">” has been reimagined for visually sophisticated audiences of the 21st century.
“This is not your momma’s ‘Robin Hood%20Hood&redirect=yes">.’ You come along expecting to see traditional pretty British ‘Robin Hood%20Hood&redirect=yes">’ with men in tights you’re going to be very, very, very disappointed, said director Otto Bathurst.
The cast of the new movie reunited in New York for a special red carpet screening on Sunday (November 11).
Welsh actor Taron Egerton takes on the lead role and said Bathurst is what attracted him to the role.
“Even down to the accents, you know, we didn’t want to be like all traditional. I even patterned mine accent off of a guy in ‘Malcolm X.’ That, when Denzel went to jail. ‘Think back brother Malcom, all of those – and look at you, putting that conk in your hair.’ So it was a little – we were sort of doing our own thing with it, you know?”
