British website HeyUGuys recently visited the set of Robin Hood, which is currently filming near Farnham in Surrey, and they offered some new information on the film. WARNING: Spoilers contained below:
Filming in the villages will begin shooting next week (I hope to go along to watch at some point!)
The village will be burnt down once the filming has finished (I hope) and this will form part of the plot (there are loads of huge reservoirs of water all around the site which I assume will be to put the fire out when the need arises)
The castle completion is running behind schedule and should be finished by now but hopes to be completed within the next couple of weeks
Huge stables are being erected around the Forrest area to deal the hundreds of horses that will be used as they have done on the beach in Pembrokeshire
The signs that lead up to the site say MMF which stands for 'Merry Men Films'!
Harry Potter 7 will be using the castle (can any Potter fans tell me why. Wherer does a castle appear?) once the shoot for Robin Hood has left.

Robin Hood stars Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Vanessa Redgrave, Mark Strong, Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand, Alan Doyle, Oscar Isaacs, Lea Seydoux and William Hurt and is currently set for a May 14, 2010 release date.
