Marian unfolds after the death of Robin Hood, the love of her life. The titular maiden then picks up his cause to lead her people into a pivotal war that will not only decide the fate of the kingdom, but also see her don the mantle of the man she loved. In the process, she rises as a legend herself.

Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment may also produce. Rock Shank is also producing through his Romark Films.

Marian is one of a handful of Robin Hood-related projects in the works. Lionsgate’s origin story starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, and Jamie Dornan is set for a March 2018 debut, and visual effects supervisor Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull will begin shooting a futuristic take later this year. A modern-day series called A Burglar’s Guide to the City is also in the works from Alex Kurtzman and Justin Lin for CBS.
