Deadline is reporting that Nicholas is on a shortlist to take on “Robin Hood: Origins”. Read the article below.

Lionsgate is looking to beat its rival Robin Hood projects to the punch by mining up-and-coming talent from across the pond for its Robin Hood: Origins. Rising Brit actor Taron Egerton is on the mini-major’s shortlist to head into Sherwood Forest, along with fellow Brits Nicholas Hoult, Jack Huston and Irish-American actor Jack Reynor. The Maze Runner‘s Dylan O’Brian is also believed to be under consideration. Scheduling is an issue for some of these hot young thesps. For example Egerton, who came to prominence with a career-making turn in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, could have availability issues if a sequel to Kingsman, which grossed over $400 million worldwide, gets its expected greenlight from Fox.

Deadline understands that Reynor had a successful session with director Otto Bathurst, the only actor who did that, and that perhaps gives him a slight advantage on the likes of Hoult and Huston, though no decisions have been made. All of the above names would bring plenty — and different — strengths to the role.

Peaky Blinders‘ Bathurst is directing Lionsgate’s gritty, revisionist take on the legend. Joby Harold, the scribe who wrote Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur with Guy Ritchie directing Charlie Hunnam, has conjured up the origins story that has been likened to The Dark Knight. Here, Robin Hood returns from fighting in The Crusades and finds that Sherwood Forest is rife with corruption and evil. He forms a band of outlaws and they take matters into their own hands. The picture is being produced by Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson, and Safe House’s Harold and Tory Tunnell and Basil Iwanyk.

There are other Robin Hood projects also set up around town. Disney has the Brandon Barker spec Nottingham & Hood, which is said to be in the vein of Pirates Of The Caribbean and Enchanted. The Picture Company’s Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona are producing. Sony last fall bought a Robin Hood pitch for $1 million from Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott with Aperture’s Adam Goldworm executive producing. That project, Hood, has been described as Fast And Furious meets Mission: Impossible. Warner Bros has also quietly put one of its own Robin Hood projects into development, scripted by Gangster Squad and Aquaman scribe Will Beall and produced by The Lego Movie‘s Dan Lin and John Zaozirny.

With the quartet of projects vying to get to the start post, Lionsgate is doing everything it can to get out of the gates first. It is aiming to start production in the first quarter of 2016. The last time there were rival Robin Hood projects was in 1991, when the Kevin Costner-starrer Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves went against the Patrick Bergin-Uma Thurman Robin Hood and wiped the floor with it despite being released a month later.

Every year brings a crop of hot new stars to watch. Sometimes those stars exceed expectations like Jennifer Lawrence, who scored last year with The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook. And sometimes they fall flat on their faces. I’m looking at you Taylor Kitsch.

For 2013, the first up-and-comer who gets to prove himself is Nicholas Hoult. You might remember him as the precocious kid from the 2002 Hugh Grant movie About a Boy. Hoult, now 23, has appeared in a slew of films since then, most notably X-Men First Class, where he played Beast.

But in 2013, he’ll headline two reasonably big films: Warm Bodies and Jack The Giant Slayer. In Warm Bodies, which hits theaters in February, he’ll play a zombie in love. Then in March, he’ll play Jack in a modern take on the classic fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Neither film is a slam dunk. Although Warm Bodies is getting some momentum, it’s a tough sell beyond fans of the book. Jack has a pretty snazzy new trailer and it smartly hits theaters in March, a month that used to be a Hollywood dead zone until The Hunger Games proved that people will go to the theaters at that time of year if there’s something worth seeing.

Peter Molyneux is upgrading the star power of his next “Fable.”

The creative director of Microsoft Game Studios Europe has tapped Simon Pegg, Michael Fassbender, John Cleese and other actors to lend their accents to “Fable III,” the third chapter of Lionhead Studios’ role-playing saga set in the fictional realm of Albion. Pegg, who played Scotty in “Star Trek,” will voice an attention-seeking soldier named Benn Finn.

“These people have really never come together before in any medium,” Molyneux said. “For a lot of them, this is their first computer game they’ve ever done. Heading the cast is John Cleese, one of the founding fathers of ‘Monty Python.’ He’s made fantastic films like ‘Life of Brian’ and the TV series ‘Fawlty Towers.’ He’s just a brilliant and incredible actor.”

Cleese plays Jasper, a persnickety butler who guides the player along their journey to dethrone a tyrannical ruler named Logan, voiced by “Inglourious Basterds” actor Fassbender. Other voices will include Bernard Hill as the player’s faithful mentor, Nicholas Hoult as a potential love interest and Naomie Harris as the leader of a rebel movement.

Zoe Wanamaker and Stephen Fry will also reprise their “Fable II” roles.

He’s best known in the UK for his role in Skins as Tony ‘preening fool rescued from his own wankiness by being hit by a bus’ Stonem (a role which he handled with aplomb).

However, his most impressive performances to date have come in his breakthrough role as Marcus in About A Boy, providing a much better foil for Mr Grant than Bullock, Roberts, McDowell or Barrymore ever could, and in the BBC drama Coming Down The Mountain. In this Mark Haddon-scripted teleplay he managed to evoke empathy for his character, David, whose main pastimes included abusing his Down’s syndrome suffering brother and trying to kill him. This may not be quite as big an achievement as making Hugh Grant seem likeable, but it’s impressive all the same.

Following minor roles in Clash Of The Titans and Adulthood and a stellar performance in A Single Man, he looks to have hit the big time in the movies, cast as Hank McCoy in the upcoming X-Men prequel X-Men: First Class. His agent must watch About A Boy on his HDTV in his penthouse apartment bought with his fifteen percent thinking, “thank God he got so handsome!”
