So, who gets to play the handsome star's wife? The lucky lady is none other than Bono's stunning daughter, actress Eve Hewson. The 25-year-old from Dublin recently appeared in the Steven Spielberg film Bridge of Spies, playing Tom Hanks's daughter. 

But, because no film is complete without a love triangle, Hewson is actually Maid Marian, the former love interest of Robin Hood, who will be played by Taron Egerton. Should be interesting!

The cast will also include Jamie Foxx starring as Little John. If all goes according to plan, production will begin in Budapest in January. That seems like an ideal setting to recreate Sherwood Forest, right? 

Dornan, who recently appeared in Anthropoid, said he's done portraying Christian Grey in the films based on EL James erotic novels. Yet, he did confide that he'd be happy to continue on as the devilishly attractive but super creepy Paul Spector in the BBC series The Fall

Something tells us that Dornan as Scarlett will be pure perfection. We can't wait to learn a bit more about the Lionsgate film, which will be directed by Otto Bathurst.
