 MORGAN CREEK PRODUCTIONS TO FOLLOW BLOCKBUSTER 'ROBIN HOOD'
 WITH VIKING EPIC
 HOLLYWOOD, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- After its most successful year ever (1991), Hollywood's top independent film company, Morgan Creek Productions, plans to follow its $400 million blockbuster "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" with a large-scale Viking epic "The Northmen," it was announced today by Morgan Creek Chairman James G. Robinson.
 "The Northmen," an original screenplay by Randall McCormick to be produced by David Heyman and Neal Moritz (whose credits include the urban drama "Juice"), is a swashbuckling epic adventure set in medieval England and Scandinavia and chronicles the exploits of a young English nobleman who's captured by a band of Vikings. He becomes a part of their culture before returning to England to claim what is rightfully his.
 An all-star cast will be announced shortly with production to begin on European locations this fall.
 Past hits from Morgan Creek Productions include: "Young Guns" and "Young Guns II;" "Major League;" "Pacific Heights," starring Michael Keaton, Melanie Griffith and Matthew Modine; and the critically acclaimed "Enemies, A Love Story," starring Anjelica Huston, Ron Silver and Lena Olin.
 "White Sands," a thriller starring Willem Dafoe, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Mickey Rourke and directed by Roger Donaldson will be Morgan Creek Production's next release (via Warner Bros.) opening April 24.
