Russell Crowe & Cate Blanchett in Official Robin Hood Photos
Although we've seen plenty of photos from Robin Hood already, these four below (and one above) are the first officially released photos from Universal. Australia's Courier-Mail has the first exclusive look at Robin Hood with a small batch featuring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian (whom we haven't seen before). She definitely has the long, flowing dark red hair that Maid Marian is known for. The second photo shows Robin Hood and his Merry Men, made up of Kevin Durand, Scott Grimes, and Alan Doyle. The fourth photo at the end looks like some crazy scene reminiscent of Gladiator. Check out all of ’em below!
This Robin Hood follows Robin from his early days in King Richard's army to his return to Nottingham to his creation of a band of mercenaries who challenge the sheriff and eventually try to prevent civil war. As we already know, Crowe will play Robin Hood, Blanchett will play Maid Marian, Danny Huston will play King Richard, William Hurt will play William Marshall, Matthew Macfadyen will play the Sheriff of Nottingham, Mark Strong will play Sir Godfrey, and Vanessa Redgrave will play Queen Eleanor. The screenplay and story was written by Oscar winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River). Ridley Scott is directing.
