Robin Hood With Guns?

In case Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe's brooding, revisionist take on Robin Hood isn't choking you up with anticipation, Warner Bros. is planning a dystopic, urban twist on the legend with the producers who brought you 300. Their action-adventure take is said to revolve around a cluster of futuristic London thieves whose crimes "restore hope to the city's embattled population." Perhaps surprisingly, Joel Silver and Guy Ritchie have nothing to do with this, but the guy who penned Ashton Kutcher's unfortunate gigolo comedy Spread is writing the script, so caveat emptor anyway.
