The classic tale of the heroic outlaw Robin Hood was revisited by Kevin Reynolds in 1991 with Kevin Costner in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It was only second to Terminator 2: Judgment Day as the highest grossing film that year. Mostly due to the excellent song Everything I Do, I Do It for You with Bryan Adams.

Den of Geek: “Going back to Robin Hood, we got the extended cut on DVD a couple of years ago, which was received exceptionally well. I’m wondering if you feel in any way – I’m not sure if ‘vindicated’ is the right word, or just ‘pleased’ – that you got a different version of it out there?”

Kevin Reynolds: “Well, yes and no – what you really wish is that the original version had been that, the original release had been your version. But yeah, to some extent I am happy that people saw more of what I intended.”
