YOU (South Africa) - - *CHILL OUT -

This movie comes 110 years after the first Robin Hood film, Robin Hood and His Merry Men (1908).

Dan­ish YouTube sen­sa­tion Lars An­der­sen was hired to teach the cast archery. His skills with a bow and ar­row have earned him the nick­name “the re­al­life Le­go­las”, after the elf in The Lord of the Rings. One of his skills is the abil­ity to hit in­com­ing ar­rows mid-air.

Taron joins Sean Con­nery (1976), Kevin Cost­ner (1991) and Rus­sell Crowe (2010), who’ve all starred as Robin Hood over the years.

Jamie Foxx says he was sur­prised by Taron’s singing voice on set. “The boy can ab­so­lutely sing,” he said on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fal­lon.

Jamie played iconic R&B singer Ray Charles in Ray (2004), while Taron is set to star as El­ton John in the 2019 biopic Rock­et­man.
