There are reportedly nine other Robin Hood projects in different stages of development:

  1. Sony Pictures is developing a movie called Hood, developed by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott with an eye toward creating a shared cinematic universe that has exploded in Hollywood thanks to Marvel and DC Comics.
  2. Walt Disney is also developing a feature film called Hood, based on a script by Brandon Barker, originally called Nottingham And Hood
  3. Warner Bros. hired Will Beall (Gangster Squad ) and Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie) to develop a full treatment. John Zaozirny (Castle) was hired co-produce.
  4. DreamWorks has been developing Merry Men since April 2013 with Brad Ingelsby (Out Of The Furnace, Run All Night) writing the script and Scott Waugh set to direct.
  5. Robin Hood 2058 is a script written by Jason Hall (American Sniper) that’s been floating around for some time.
  6. Robin Hood And The Prince Of Aragon is reportedly a horror take on the adventures in Sherwood Forest from Brandon Slagle (The Black Dahlia Haunting).
  7. BBC America is developing Nottingham with Cole Haddon (NBC’s Dracula) . The official synopsis: “Nottingham centers on the Sheriff of Nottingham whose wife is killed by King John’s men. When nobody is brought to justice, the Sheriff launches a one-man war against the Crown. By day, he remains the reviled Sheriff, loyal servant of the King, but by night he puts on a hood and, using the intelligence he gains from his office, attacks the King where it hurts the most — his coffers.”
  8. FreemantleMedia is developing a TV series called The Outlaw Chronicles based on a six-book series – Outlaw, Holy Warrior, King’s Man, Warlord, Grail Knight, and The Iron Castle. This production format looks to be inspired by the huge success of Game of Thrones on HBO. 
  9. One PlayStation game with the voice talents of Andy Serkis is in development.
