Robin Hood picture
Universal Pictures has got Russell Crowe on board to topline its new big screen project "Nottingham."


Following its victorious attempt to secure to rights to hotly-pursued spec script of "Nottingham" written by "Sleeper Cell" scribes Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris, Universal Pictures has reportedly picked up Russell Crowe to topline the project, which it will develop alongside Imagine Entertainment.

With the inclusion, Crowe therefore once again finds himself work under Imagine after crime drama "American Gangster" which is set to open this year on November 2. Prior to this Ridley Scott-directed flick, the Oscar-winning actor played the title character in another Imagine's production "Cinderella Man" back in 2005.

As for "Nottingham", the picture is said to be a revised version of the Robin Hood story and will see Crowe as the Sheriff of Nottingham. Production is scheduled to start at the end of this year or in early 2008 with Imagine's Brian Grazer producing.
