Russell Crowe is cast as both Robin Hood and the Sheriff in Nottingham
Ridley Scott has announced his attention to have Russell Crowe play both lead characters in his upcoming movie: Nottingham. Nottingham is a tale told from the perspective of Robin Hood's nemesis "the sheriff of Nottingham".
Turning Robin Hood into a bad guy is an interesting spin on the classic tale. However the only successful time this has been achieved is in the Austin Powers series. If anyone is going to achieve this feat though, it is Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott. I for one am excited at the prospect of Nottingham due out in 2009. Any new developments will be reported here so stay tuned.
