Director Ridley Scott is hoping his upcoming Robin Hood blockbuster is a hit - because he has already mapped out plans for a sequel.
And Scott is desperate for the film to triumph at the box office when it is released later this year, because he wants to turn the Robin Hood story into a successful franchise.
He says, "It is the beginnings of how the man becomes known as Robin the Hood. You don't really get that until the last few minutes when you realise, 'Ah this is who he is.' Let's say we might presume there's a sequel. Honestly, I thought, 'Why not have the potential for a sequel, particularly if it is a genre that you absolutely love and has never been fully explored?' If there were to be a sequel, you would have a constant enemy throughout, King John, and you would follow his reign of 17 years. The signing of the Magna Carta could be Robin's final act."
