What's with all these Robin Hood movies?

Hollywood is working on seven Robin Hood reboots. Seven!

The classic tale of Robin Hood will be reimagined on the silver screen this fall. Then it will be reimagined again and again and again and again and again and again over the next couple years, because there are seven Robin Hood reboots in the works in Hollywood right now.

Some sound better than others. Nottingham & Hood and Marian seem fine in a vacuum. However, I'm skeptical of Robin Hood and can't say I'm psyched about Robin Hood 2058 (will his bow shoot lasers?) or Robin Hood And The Prince Of Aragon, billed as a "vibrant punk-pop retelling of the mythos."
