In TALES OF A FIFTH GRADE ROBIN HOOD, after a young boy (Chase Brown, "The Underground Railroad") in an under-funded school discovers the Vice Principal (Lovitz) is stealing money from fundraisers and lives in a mansion, he and his friends decide to get back that money and put where it belongs: in the classroom. The movie also stars Iliana Perez ("Coche Bomba") and Jayden Scala ("American Princess"). TALES OF A FIFTH GRADE ROBIN HOOD, from The Asylum ("Sharknado"), is written by Ryan Ebert ("San Andreas Mega Quake") and Anna Rasmussen ("Jurassic School"), and directed by Dylan Vox ("The Christmas Sitters").
