Ridley Scott remaking Robin Hood with Russell Crowe

Robin Hood

Scource: Hollywood Reporter, IMDB

Ridley Scott’s still-not-officially-titled Robin Hood has added another name to its already-impressive cast list, with the news that Danny Huston has signed on to play Richard the Lionheart.Watchmen (Director's Cut)

Last seen getting his bad guy on as General Stryker in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Huston will this time be playing a character who’s (traditionally anyway) a good guy in the Robin Hood universe. Richard the Lionheart was the King whose departure for the crusades, and subsequent capture and imprisonment, left the power vacuum filled by the cowardly lion Prince John and the big fat grey wolf the Sheriff of Nottingham. This being a reworking of the franchise, it’s always possible that the Lionheart’s a rather more complex character – as indeed he was in real life.

Russell Crowe is co-writer and will star as Robin Hood. Cate Blanchett has been tabbed to play Maid Marian

 Paul Engelen (Gladiator, Quantum of Solace, Troy) is the makeup designer
