Robin Hood, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, will kick off the 63rd Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, May 12, 2010. The epic hero reboot will be presented out of competition.

The screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland (L.A Confidential, Mystic River) and portrays the origin story of the Robin Hood legend. To star, Ridley Scott chose Russell Crowe, who he teamed up with for 2000’s Gladiator, for a role previously brought to the screen by Errol Flynn, Sean Connery and Kevin Costner.

This will not be Scott’s first showing at Cannes, as he was in the official selection at the festival with The Duellists, a prize winner in 1977, then with Thelma and Louise, which was presented out of competition in 1991.

Robin Hood will be released in theaters in France the day of its presentation at Cannes, and released worldwide on May 14th.

The Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 12 to May 23.
