Robin Hood Vs. vampires

That's about the best way to sum up Sherwood Horror, the latest revisionist telling of the Robin Hood legend.

The film, which is expected to begin production in 2011 under the direction of John Regan, tells the story of ex-con Rob Locksley, who returns home after a six-year absence to find his town overrun by vampires. He enlists the help of his old roughneck hunting buddies to wage war against the evil and, we suspect, rob from the rich to give to the poor. 'Cause that's what Robin Hood did you know.

It also sounds like the story has been moved to the present. Last I heard there were no roughnecks in Ye 'Ole England.

Sherwood Horror's cast includes DJ Perry, Bill McKinney, Taymour Ghazi, Terry Jernigan, Mike Powers, Paul Proios and Austin Two-Feathers. Albanian actress Alma Saraci was just cast as Marion, and we've included her picture in this article. 'Cause that's what we're like here in The Basement you know.

Does the world need another telling of the Robin Hood story and yet another movie about vampires? No. But maybe one plus one equals three this time around. We'll keep you posted as news about this production leaks out.
