Yeah everybody in Robin Hood is white because it’s 14th century England and everybody was white, what the fuck are you doing Hollywood? Rhetorical question, I know what you’re doing but it’s dumb as hell and also stop.

Morgan Freeman was in Prince of Thieves.  But as a Moor, who travelled after the Crusades.

The story has to justify it of course.

They cant have him being little john or something.

 

 

 

Having said all that I just remembered Costner and Slater had North American accents while in Sherwood Forest too.

I’m assuming it’s a case of needing to make a Robin Hood film or losing the rights to produce further Robin Hood films but without any actual desire to make one. Looks like absolute shit, won’t make any money and it’ll be slaughtered by critics so it just seems pointless otherwise.

I just checked it out.  Foxx is playing Little John, and it looks like he is the hero.

 

Here he is next to Robin Hood.

Trailer.

 

Looks terrible.

 

Its just a Lord of the Rings type action movie with a Robin Hood theme.

 

No feeling of authenticity or historical time period.

So the overhwelming evidence we have from history doesn't count, but DNA analysis from 10,000 years ago does?

How does that apply to times that we actually have recorded history that shows they were a massive minority?

Just wondering what the issue is? Little John has almost no history before robin hood in any writing. No backstory, no origin, nothing.

If I remember correctly he should be 7 feet tall, which I am okay with him not being so long as he is physically more imposing than Robin, and kicked Robin's ass in their duel at the river with a quarterstaff when Little John tried to mug him.

Fine by me!
