An Errol Flynn bio pic? Kevin Kline and Dakota Fanning star in “The Last of Robin Hood”

The filmmakers who gave us the light Latino dramedy “Quinceneara” haven’t been heard from much in the years since. But they’ve landed Kevin Kline to play the late swashbuckler Errol Flynn in a bio-pic about his last days, with Dakota Fanning as among those in his life near the end.

Oscar winner Susan Sarandon joins the Oscar winning Kline, and she’ll play Florence Aadland.

Flynn was in his glory in the 30s, starring in the classic “Adventures of Robin Hood,” “Captain Blood,” and other swashbuckling adventures. Twenty years later, as Flynn’s dissolute life wound down, the years of boozing, pill popping, brawling and womanizing — occasionally with women absurdly young — caught up with him years before his time.
