Naomie Harris and Gwendoline Christie join ‘Robin and the Hood’ – The Hollywood Reporter

Naomie Harris, Gwendoline Christie and Harry Potter Star Mark Williams has joined the ensemble cast of the family adventure film Robin and the Hood alongside rising star Darcey Ewart (Prancer: A Christmas Story for Olivia).

The film, which wrapped filming over the summer, comes from director Phil Hawkins (Prancer: A Christmas Story) and was written by Stuart Benson and Paul Davidson, with the script first optioned by Silver Reel in 2021. The film is set to premiere as a Sky Original in the UK and Ireland on Sky Cinema, with GFM Global Sales handling the film at the subsequent AFM conference, a deal signed ahead of launch.

Robin and the Hood follows stubborn 11-year-old Robin (Ewart) and her loyal group of friends “The Hoods,” for whom the overgrown bushland at the end of their cul-de-sac is a magical kingdom. Sticks and trash can lids have become swords and shields, drones have become majestic eagles, and the hippie lady in the woods (Christie) is a terrifying witch. The only thing limiting her colorful imagination is the prospect of losing her kingdom forever. As the slippery real estate developer Clipboard (Harris, who played Arthur Weasley potter (films) appear and amaze local parents with promises of health resorts and daycare centers, the world of Robin and The Hoods faces an existential threat. Despite the children’s best efforts, their protests fall on deaf ears. When her parents can’t see the forest for the trees, Robin and her friends take matters into their own hands to defend their kingdom.

The film is produced by Claudia Bluemhuber of Silver Reel and Matt Williams of Future Artists Entertainment. Alexander Jooss, Florian Dargel and Karol Griffiths (Silver Reel) and Julia Stuart and Andrew Orr (Sky) will be the executive producers.

“We were thrilled with Stuart and Paul’s script from the first moment – Robin and the Hood is a story with a lot of heart and a lot of laughter that reminds us of the power and importance of imagination in a world that is quickly losing it,” said Bluemhuber. “Adding the fantastic (quartet) of Naomie, Mark, Gwendoline and Darcey to star in our cast is a brilliant coup and we are delighted that Sky, Future Artists and GFM are joining us on this adventure!”
