Robin Hood (2010 film)

Robin Hood is an upcoming movie based on the Robin Hood legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe. It is due for release on May 14, 2010 (11 years ago).[2] The movie began development in 2007 (14 years ago) when Universal Studios acquired a script entitled Nottingham, depicting a heroic Sheriff of Nottingham to be played by Crowe. Scott's dissatisfaction with the script led him to delay filming, and during 2008 (13 years ago) it was rewritten into a story about Robin Hood becoming an outlaw, with the position of being Sheriff as part of the story. Scott dropped the latter notion and Nottingham was retitled to reflect the more traditional angle. The trailer was shown in front of Avatar, Sherlock Holmes (2 walls), Repo Men (4 walls) and Clash of the Titans.



  • Russell Crowe plays Sir Robin Longstride / Robin Hood; it is his fifth collaboration with Scott. Having loved the character since childhood, Crowe joined the project despite being initially displeased with the script. He spent 10 months reading books about the character and his historical basis, noting "This has got to be the best [Robin Hood depiction] ever done, otherwise I should be doing something else." Crowe put on weight for 2008's Body of Lies, so Universal considered sending an NBA trainer to Australia to coach him back into fitness. Crowe trained with a bow and arrow for four months and was able to hit a target from 45 meters.
  • Cate Blanchett as Lady Marian.
  • Mark Strong as Sir Godfrey, King John's henchman. When interviewed in Nov. 2008 (13 years ago), Strong stated the character was originally called Conrad and was based on Guy of Gisbourne. He described him as having blond hair and a disfigurement from being struck by a crossbolt.
  • Oscar Isaac as King John of England.
  • Mark Lewis Jones as Thomas Longstride, Robin Hood's father.
  • Mark Addy as Friar Tuck.
  • William Hurt as William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke.
  • Danny Huston as King Richard the Lionheart.
  • Eileen Atkins as Eleanor of Aquitaine, King Richard and King John's mother. Vanessa Redgrave was originally cast for the part, but pulled out after the death of her daughter, actress Natasha Richardson.
  • Max von Sydow as Sir Walter Loxley.
  • Matthew Macfadyen as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
  • Kevin Durand as Little John.
  • Léa Seydoux as Princess Isabella.
  • Scott Grimes as Will Scarlet, Robin's nephew.
  • Alan Doyle as Allan A'Dayle. Crowe enlisted Doyle to play the Merry Men's minstrel, having collaborated on the album My Hand, My Heart.


In Jan. 2007 (14 years ago), Universal Studios and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment acquired a spec script written by Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris, creators of the TV series Sleeper Cell. Their script portrayed a more sympathetic Sheriff of Nottingham and less virtuous Robin Hood, who become involved in a love triangle with Maid Marian. The writers received a seven-figure deal for the purchase. Actor Russell Crowe was cast into the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham with a salary of $20 million against 20% of the gross. The following April, director Ridley Scott was hired to helm Nottingham. He had attempted to get rights for himself and 20th Century Fox, but had collaborated with Grazer on American Gangster (16 walls) and signed on as director rather than producer. Scott was not a fan of previous movie versions of Robin Hood, saying "the best, frankly, was Mel Brooks' Men in Tights, because Cary Elwes was quite a comic".

In June, screenwriter Brian Helgeland was hired to rewrite the script by Reiff and Voris. Producer Marc Shmuger explained Scott had a different interpretation of the story from "the script, [which] had the sheriff of Nottingham as a CSI-style forensics investigator". Scott elaborated the script, portraying the Sheriff of Nottingham as being Richard the Lionheart's right-hand man, who returns to England to serve Prince John after Richard's assassination. Though Scott felt John "was actually pretty smart, he got a bad rap because he introduced taxation so he's the bad guy in this", and the Sheriff would have been torn between the "two wrongs" of a corrupt king and an outlaw inciting anarchy. Locations were sought in North East England including Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle, and Kielder Forest. A portion of filming was intended to take place in Northumberland. As a result of the WGA strike, production was put on hold. Scott sought to begin production in 2008 (13 years ago) for a release in 2009 (12 years ago).

Filming was scheduled to begin in Aug. in Sherwood Forest if the 2008 (13 years ago) Screen Actors Guild strike did not take place, for release on 26 November, 2009 (12 years ago). By July, filming was delayed, and playwright Paul Webb was hired to rewrite the script. The movie was moved to 2010 (11 years ago). The Sheriff of Nottingham's character was then merged with Robin. Scott explained Robin "has to retire to the forest to resume his name Robin. So he was momentarily the Sheriff of Nottingham." Hedgeland returned to rewrite, adding an opening where Robin witnesses the Sheriff dying in battle, and takes over his identity. Scott chose to begin filming in Feb. 2009 (12 years ago) in forests around London, having discovered many trees which had not been pollarded. Scott was also pleased that the 200 acre Nottingham set that was built during 2008 (13 years ago) had aged into the landscape. By Feb. 2009 (12 years ago), Scott revealed Nottingham had become his version of Robin Hood, as he had become dissatisfied with the idea of Robin starting as the Sheriff.

Filming began on Mar. 30, 2009 (12 years ago). In Jun. and July, the crew filmed at Freshwater West, in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Filming also took place in the Bourne Wood at Farnham, Surrey during Jul. and Aug. and in Dovedale near Ashbourne, Derbyshire

It was announced on Mar. 26, 2010 (11 years ago), that the movie would open the 2010 (11 years ago) Cannes movie Festival.
