Robin Hood: Origins has found its Maid Marian.

The Knick star Eve Hewson will follow in the footsteps of Olivia de Havilland, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Cate Blanchett in playing the outlaw's love interest.

According to Deadline, Hewson held off competition from more than 100 actresses to win the role.

Belle's Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gaite Jansen and Lucy Fry were among the rising stars who came close to joining new Robin Hood Taron Egerton in Sherwood Forest.

A bit of trivia on Hewson... she's the daughter of non other than U2 frontman Bono.

Peaky Blinders director Otto Bathurst is behind the camera for Robin Hood: Orgins, with Joby Harold (Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur) writing the script.

The story, apparently inspired by Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, sees Robin return from the Crusades and fight corruption in Nottingham with his band of Merry Men.

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the producers on the movie.
