Written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, the film will also star Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon as Florence Aadland, the mother of Beverly Aadland, who was allegedly seduced by Flynn when she was 15 years old.
"The Last of Robin Hood," which is scheduled to begin production in January 2013, is based on Flynn's final days before he died of a heart attack at age 50 and follows his relationship with 17-year-old Beverly, an actress who co-starred in his last film "Cuban Rebel Girls."
