THE SIEGE OF ROBIN HOOD: Paul Allica’s Debut Action Adventure Emerges With A Pair Of Posters
It’s taken more than five (count ’em…FIVE) years for actor, stunt performer and filmmaker Paul Allica to come as far as he has with his feature directing debut, The Siege Of Robin Hood. It’s been a journey imperiled with insurmountable odds at times – challenges that Allica has met head on through some pretty immense problem-solving and resourceful thinking.
To that end, Allica’s journey of production ended when he officially wrapped all post-prod editing back in September and garnered the attention of the trades thanks to landing a platform with international sales reps at Kaleidoscope. Distro acquisitions and release news currently remains pending as far as I know, but a cast and crew screening is already in tow later this month, and Allica has a new pair of posters to celebrate the occasion.
In a time of chaos and tyranny, the once great nation of England teeters perilously on the brink of mass revolution. After the merciless Sheriff of Nottingham orders a brutal attack on his family, a young man named Robin swears bloody revenge on the men responsible, vowing to restore freedom to those trapped under the realm’s oppressive rule.
Advised and mentored by the reclusive magician Merlin, Robin and his right-hand man Lancelot recruit a deadly team of exiled fighters and skilled mavericks to rally the villagers for an explosive all-out assault on the Crown’s castle.
I was fortunate to score a screening of an early, work-in-progress copy of the film courtesy of Allica. I’m embargoed, as it stands, and so I can’t give fully detailed viewpoints and critiques. What I can say, is that as far as humble, ambitious, independently-produced action and fantasy entertainment goes, Allica has certainly walked the walk, and with a project that is sure to entertain fans in some areas. Think: a Robin Hood tale, sprinkled with a few doses of Jackie Chan-style action and Hong Kong fan service for general audiences.
