Kevin Kline Will Be Errol Flynn
In The Last Of Robin Hood

Though your brain might not naturally flick to Kevin Kline when you hear that someone will be playing screen legend Errol Flynn, he does at least have the voice and the chin for the role. And since The Last Of Robin Hood is set during Flynn’s last days at the age of 50, he could be perfect casting.

Kline is attached to play Flynn in the time shortly before he died of a heart attack. He spent his last couple of years romancing 17 year-old Beverly Aadland who he allegedly first seduced when she was 15 and had co-starred in his last film, Cuban Rebel Girls.

Susan Sarandon is also looking to take part as Florence, Beverly’s stage mother who pushed her daughter into performing when her own aspirations to be a star didn’t work out.

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland have collaborated on the script and plan to start directing the movie in January, once they’ve locked in the actress to play Beverly.

We last saw Kline in Darling Companion and he’s about to work on geezer bachelor party comedy Last Vegas with Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro. Sarandon has The Big Wedding set to arrive on November 9 and then Cloud Atlas, scheduled for February 22.

KLINE, ERROL'S DOUBLE.
Hi,. I'd just like to say that it is written above that Kline might just pass it off, its aa walk in the breeze for him. i have always thought that if he only had that mustache he would be Errol's double, in fact so much that i wonder if he is related. highest regards, Elvin Priestley. www.elvinpriestley.com More

He has the look. My immediate thought was, can he actually pull off an Aussie accent? Not many can, but I'm not sure if Errol still maintained his living in the US. More

Not so odd.
He played Douglas Fairbanks in Chaplin, which is hardly a million miles away... More
