'Nottingham' to Be Called 'Robin Hood', Ridley Scott Clarifies Rumors


Ridley Scott


Aside from revealing that his 'Nottingham' project will from now on be known as 'Robin Hood', director Ridley Scott spills the bean on his new idea for it as well as the rumors circulating around.

A revisionist take on the Robin Hood tale, "Nottingham", has been scraped and is projected toward "Robin Hood". Director Ridley Scott fessed up about the matter to MTV News, saying "I am in a constant stage of development. I am liable to do 'Gucci.' I am liable to do a thing called 'Child 44,' and I am doing 'Robin Hood' next... Oh yes, I think we are just going to call it 'Robin Hood'."

Describing his Robin Hood as "a bowman in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion", Scott then clarified on Russell Crowe's double role in "Nottingham". "[Crowe as both Robin and the Sheriff of Nottingham] was an idea so far back, way back when at the time I had this proposed to me, and I read it and thought, 'I don't really know what it does for it, but it's alright'," he stated. "It is better to simply have the evolution of a character called Robin Hood, who will come out of a point in the Crusades which is the end."

On the villain his Robin has to face, the Academy Award-nominated director revealed, "It is from France. It is the French. The villain is much bigger in that sense; much more important, and much more dangerous." He also addressed on Crowe's weight issue, saying "Oh that is silly; all that stuff is bullsh-t. He is going to be totally fit. That is not a problem at all. And he's been working on his bow and arrow for about 4 months. He sends me tapes of him hitting targets at about 45 meters. He's pretty good!"

Filming of "Robin Hood" will begin in two months with Russell Crowe starring as the titular character. As for the Maid Marian depicter, rumors are circulating that Cate Blanchett has been considered to be the potential candidate to replace Sienna Miller for the leading lady role after the actress has been reported to leave the project.
