Naomie Harris, Gwendoline Christie and Mark Williams (Harry PotterGolden Years) have joined the ensemble cast of a new family adventure film ‘Robin and the Hood.’

Rising star Darcey Ewart will play the lead role of Robin, whilst Harris takes on the role of evil developer ‘Clipboard’, Christie plays environmental activist ‘Aura’ and Williams features as the local Town Mayor.

The official synopsis reads; For the tenacious 11-year-old Robin (Ewart) and her loyal band of friends ‘The Hoods’, the patch of overgrown scrubland at the end of their cul-de-sac is a magical kingdom.  Sticks and bin lids have become swords and shields, drones have become majestic eagles and the hippy lady in the forest (Christie) is a terrifying witch. The only thing limiting their colourful imagination is the prospect of losing their kingdom forever.  When the slippery property developer Clipboard (Harris) turns up and dazzles the parents of the area with promises of health spas and day-care facilities, Robin and The Hoods’ world is faced with an existential threat.  Despite the children’s best efforts, their protests fall on deaf ears.  When their parents can’t see the wood for the trees, Robin and her friends take matters into their own hands to defend their kingdom.
