Justin Lin developing Robin Hood TV series

Fast Five filmmaker Justin Lin is working on a modern-day TV take on the classic Robin Hood tale.
The director has teamed up with Hollywood producer Alex Kurtzman to develop the tentatively-titled A Burglar’s Guide to the City, which will be based on the book of the same name by Geoff Manaugh.
Paul Grellong will write the script and serve as an executive producer, a role he previously took on for Lin’s Scorpion TV show pilot in 2014.
The project, which will centre on a group of criminals who steal from the rich to give to those apparently wronged by a corrupt system, has already been picked up for a pilot by CBS network executives, according to TheWrap.com.
Lin will direct and co-executive produce the series.
