There has been some confusion swirling around Ridley Scott's next project, Nottingham, and Ridley Scott has cleared some of it up, starting with a new title. According to MTV Movies Blog, Ridley Scott has revealed that his new film Nottingham will now be changed to simply Robin Hood.
"Oh yes, I think we are just going to call it Robin Hood," Scott told the site. "We start in almost 2 months."
Scott also revealed that the notion that Russell Crowe would portray both the title character and the Sheriff of Nottingham has since been abandoned and Crowe will now just portray Robin Hood.
"Robin Hood is in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion," he said of how we'll find the character early in the film "He is a bowman in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion."
"[Crowe as both Robin and the Sheriff of Nottingham] was an idea so far back, way back when at the time I had this proposed to me, and I read it and thought, 'I don't really know what it does for it, but it's alright'," Scott recalled of the now-abandoned idea. "It is better to simply have the evolution of a character called Robin Hood, who will come out of a point in the Crusades which is the end."
