Sienna Miller has signed on to star with Russell Crowe in ‘Nottingham’ a new revisionist take on the tale of Robin Hood. Miller will star as Maid Marion in a story that focuses on the Sherrif of Nottingham (Crowe) as a lawman who works under a corrupt king, and engages in a love triangle with Marion and Robin Hood.
The film will start shooting late summer, and will be directed by Ridley Scott. The film has been scheduled for a November 6, 2009 release.
I was skeptical of this until I read the part where Ridley Scott would be directing. I love when Scott and Crowe team up, and I love Scott’s period epics, this could end up being a very entertaining film.
