Ridley Scott Will Direct "Nottingham"

by | May 1, 2007 | Comments

Celebrated director Ridley Scott will reunite with actor Russell Crowe for the fourth time on the revisionist take on "Robin Hood" called "Nottingham." (Can you name the other three movies?)

They’re "Gladiator," "A Good Year," and the upcoming "American Gangster." OK, so it was kind of a trick question.

The switch with the "Nottingham" project is that the normally-evil Sheriff is now the good guy and the usually-noble Robin will be portrayed as the trouble-maker. Crowe will play the title character and Ridley Scott will direct … as soon as he’s done making "American Gangster" and a spy thriller with Leonardo DiCaprio called "Body of Lies."

"Nottingham" comes from screenwriters Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff, and although their last movie was "Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight," they’ve also done some very solid TV work. The screenplay actually caused a bidding war of some sort.
