Jamie Dornan may be turning in his whips, handcuffs and blindfolds for a felt hat, tunic and medieval sword.
The Fifty Shades leading man is in talks to join the cast of Robin Hood: Origins as Will Scarlett, the half-brother of the titular character and member of the Merry Men.
The film, which will be set in the Sherwood Forest, follows Robin Hood as he returns from the Crusades and aligns himself with a band of outlaws to combat corruption.
Otto Bathurst will direct the film, while Joby Harold will pen the script. Leonardo DiCaprio is on board as a producer.
Jamie has had a busy year so far, acting in the wartime film Anthropoid and the thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax. He’ll also reprise his role as Christian Grey in the steamy Fifty Shades Darker, out in Feb. 2017, and the final film in the franchise, Fifty Shades Freed. That project is set to hit screens in Feb. 2018.
What do you think of this news? Is Jamie suited for a sword fight in the woods, or should he stick to S&M play in the shower? Let us know!
