Lionsgate Taps ‘Peaky Blinders’ Director for ‘Robin Hood: Origins’

Lionsgate is in talks with “Peaky Blinders” director Otto Bathurst to helm “Robin Hood: Origins” for the studio.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson are producing through their Appian Way banner with Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell through their Safe House Prods.

Harold is writing the script set in Sherwood Forest with Robin Hood returning from the Crusades and forming a band of outlaws to deal with corruption. Harold’s writing credits include Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur,” starring Charlie Hunnam.

Numerous “Robin Hood” movies have been made during the past century. The most recent came in 2010 with Ridley Scott directing Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett in Universal’s “Robin Hood,” which topped $320 million in worldwide grosses.

Bathurst directed the first season of “Peaky Blinders,” starring Cillian Murphy as the leader of a gang operating in  England during the aftermath of World War I. He’s repped by Casarotto Ramsay and WME.

The news about Bathurst was first reported by Deadline.com.
