Jamie Dornan is reportedly in talks to play Will Scarlett in a new Robin Hood movie.

In Robin Hood: Origins, Scarlett, a member of Hood's Merry Men, will be married to Maid Marian, the woman who famously became the object of the Sherwood Forest outlaw's affections.

Taron Egerton has signed on to play Robin Hood, while Jamie Foxx will take on the role of Little John. Maid Marian will be played by Bono's actress daughter Eve Hewson.

Filming is set to begin in January in Budapest, Hungary.

Jamie is also busy on new independent movie Untogether, alongside Girls star Jemima Kirke.

The Holywood actor, who recently finished production on the second and third instalments of the popular Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, will portray a successful author who falls for Jemima's character, a former teen prodigy and drug addict-turned-writer, in the dramatic comedy.

The pair are joined by Jemima’s sister Lola Kirke, marking the siblings' first movie together, and recent Emmy-winner Ben Mendelsohn.

The next Fifty Shades movie, Fifty Shades Darker, based on the erotic novels by E.L. James, hits cinemas next February, with the final part, Fifty Shades Freed, scheduled for 2018.

It reunites Jamie with his co-star Dakota Johnson, though Jamie recently made it clear he has no plans to return to the role of Christian Grey if James’ fourth novel Grey gets the big screen treatment.

“We have done two movies back to back now, and I'm actually finished with it," he told The Sun. "I've done Fifty Shades forever."
