ROBIN HOOD: BEYOND DARKNESS by Tristan Hartup

(My own interpretation of the Robin Hood legend, this time retelling the story but with an extreme dark fantasy twist. Bear in mind, in actuality, this is a terrible idea and I'm own fully aware of that and it should never be attempted, but the reason I'm doing this is that this is essentially my beautiful disaster, since I first thought up this idea, I couldn't drop it and as I developed it further, I became more interested and fascinated by what it could look like if it became a real thing despite knowing how much of a terrible idea it is.)

In the absence of King Richard in the intense midst of the crusades, his jealous and arrogant brother John and the corrupt Sherrif of Nottingham have devised a way to seize permanent control over all of Britain, by communing with, summoning and making a blood pact with a dark and ancient deity known as Evarum, the goddess of greed, and through her great influence, they turn England into a literal nightmarish hell on earth while thriving off on the stolen riches of the common people. As Prince John and the Sheriff prepare themselves for the final ritual which will prolong and expand their reign of darkness and terror throughout all known existence, and the people are both living in fear and forming resistance groups in order to combat this sinister force, their best, last and only hope unexpectedly arrives in the form of young and troubled returning crusader Robin of Loxley, who although is initially acting on his own accord in the face of this nightmarish situation, he reluctantly and inevitably thrown into a position where he has to become a revolutionary symbol of hope if he wants to survive all of this, as he is faced with draining the dark powers through stealing back the people's riches and hunting down a mysterious and powerful artefact that would hopefully put an end to the eternal darkness.

(Essentially, I plan to really go to town with the dark fantasy elements in this version by having Robin Hood operating in a literal hell on earth and fighting all sorts of demons, monsters and other things from your deepest darkest nightmares.)

MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong bloody violence and gore throughout, and language, and some graphic sexuality/nudity.

CHARACTERS:

Robin Hood - This version of the character is a young, hotheaded and arrogant reluctant hero who suffers from PTSD due to his time in the crusades and being imprisoned and tortured.

Evarum - This version's main antagonist, a beautiful yet dark, powerful and ancient goddess who greatly feeds off on people's greed.

Sheriff of Nottingham - This version of the character is a deeply disturbed individual, he's somewhat schizophrenic and he takes great pleasure in causing malevolence, he's influenced by Evarum the most.

Prince John - This version of the character is someone who very easily gets in over his head, stirred out of jealousy, arrogance and his self-inflated ego would make rash decisions without thinking about what the consequences of his behalf would be.

Marian - This version of the character is quite a badass, she's essentially in a strange way both Robin's equal yet his polar opposite at the same time, she's smart, resourceful, doesn't take any bullsh*t and is not afraid to get her hands dirty, but overall she has a heart of gold, and the relationship between her and Robin in this version is a complicated one, to say the least.

Little John - This version of the character is somewhat of an antagonistic rival/ally to Robin, he's a gruff and strong man whose wants nothing more than to protect his family but his temper often gets the better of him, and Robin's hotheaded nature really gets on his nerves.

Friar Tuck - This version of the character is an old childhood friend of Robin's who was once a rebellious troublemaker but now is struggling to stay on the right path.
