"Gladiator" in Sherwood Forest

The new Robin Hood movie is being released, and I'm sorry to say that it doesn't sound anything like the movie that was originally planned:

"Robin Hood" drops tights in new extreme makeover (sorry, this link has expired)

At least it has Cate Blanchett in it.

…And in other news, "Robin Hood" star Russell Crowe likes Prince Andrew.

"Nottingham" movie planned

This sounds good: Russell Crowe will reportedly star as the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 2009 movie "Nottingham," which will be directed by Ridley Scott. Sienna Miller will play Maid Marian. No word on who will portray Robin Hood, who is apparently the bad guy in this film.

In my opinion, with Russell Crowe in the lead role, this movie is almost guaranteed to be good.
