Jamie Foxx is set to play Little John in “Robin Hood: Origins,” Lionsgate’s update of the story about the archer-thief who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Taron Egerton will play Robin Hood and Eve Hewson will suit up as Maid Marian.

Little John was Robin’s right-hand man and known to fight with a staff.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way is producing the project, which will be directed by Otto Bathurst.

Foxx is coming off of “Sleepless Night,” the remake of the 2011 thriller “Nuit Blanche” and is in prep to appear in Edgar Wright’s thriller “Baby Driver” with Ansel Elgort and Lily James.
