That's fine, but you pasted a link for the larger version of the picture which be saved on my computer for a while after I get home from work.

I am personally pumped up for ROBIN HOOD. My favorite duo is back. Ridley and Russell Crowe again in a action epic motion picture.

Ridley makes perfect movies and Gladiator was one of his best movies. I think there will be a Oscar nod for this one.

Ridley scott was thinking to direct "Blood Meridean" a novel by Cormac McCarthy which is one of Cormac's best. But Ridley quoted in an article I read on IMDB "To direct such novel into a movie - A director must take a blood bath". Now the project fell in someone else's hands. I hope they do better job on that novel.

Same here, I want to see some epic battles.

Blood Meridian is set in 1800s, western world. About a kid 20s who gets involved with a famous GLANTON gang and a very cunning man knows as THE JUDGE, they are all after INDIANS SCALPS. Pretty brutal, violent novel. Beautifuly written. I think you should check it out...

Just kidding, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is one of my favorite movies, so we'll see how this movie compares

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Russel Crowe is just too old to play a convincing Robin Hood. Especially in a prequel.

You are may be right as I really don't know much about the story of Robin Hood, yet the plot behind his name is very good. I always thought Crowe would be perfect to play ROBIN HOOD. And also CHRISTIAN BALE.

In the picture, Crowe looks young and lean. I think he would be great. I trust him and Ridley. No complains.

RUSSELL CROWE?S ?ROBIN HOOD? GOES TO REWRITE AGAIN

The word from the forests of Nottingham is that there?s a new sheriff rewriting Russell Crowe?s dialogue.

I?m told that Tom Stoppard, the genius playwright (Rock N Roll, Coast of Utopia, etc) and actual screenwriter of ?Shakespeare in Love? among other films, has been reworking Ridley Scott?s ?Robin Hood? from top to bottom.


The ?Robin Hood? screenplay is becoming a legend in its own right at this pace, with several versions already in existence. And paid for with millions. But the most recent script ?the one they were shooting from?was by Brian Helgeland. He?s not chopped liver, and probably added a lot of merriment to the scenario.

Alas, now it?s Stoppard?s turn to fine tune what Helgeland put to paper?or screen, as it were. There?s a nice irony here, too: Stoppard, who is Czech born, attended school in Nottingham as a lad. He?s also 75 years old this year. Who?d know better than he what went on there so many years ago?

Yes, ?Robin Hood? has cost a fortune already and won?t be finished shooting until August. By the time we see it, the recession may be over and Yankee seats could be affordable. But that doesn?t mean it won?t be great. Scott is too smart to let ?Robin Hood? become ?Waterworld.?  And besides, my spies say the cast?including Cate Blanchett, William Hurt, and Vanessa Redgrave?is just thrilled to be getting Stoppardian verbiage.

I agree. He is awesome. I love the part in THE VILLAGE when he is talking about the Ivy going to the town to bring medicine. He is explaining himself to the village elders.

William Hurt...when ever I hear that name I think "Ollivander" from Harry Potter. And Hellboy's dad, and "Oxly" from Indy 4.

They re-wrote the script for this movie, I can't believe it. There are some scenes that Ridley Scott already shot.

Post by: Rohan on June 21, 2009, 02:15:56 PM
The budget is $175Mil. Ridley was thinking about this project for years. He always wanted to direct his version of Robin Hood. He always had Russell Crowe in mind to play the character. When studios decided to direct a unforgettable version of Robin Hood and they were aware that Ridley always been interested. Then they approached Ridley and Ridley approached Russel. The Gladiator team is back.

There are some people claiming Russell Crowe won't be able to pull it off as Robin Hood. That's cause Crowe and Scott worked in Gladiator. I don't believe. I think its a good tag team. They are creative and famous.

There is one thing I want them to be careful about. Marketing. Posters and Trailers. They should not mention - From the Director of Gladiator.
If they just put Russell Crowe, a film by Ridley Scott is good enough for the marketing.

Few years ago when THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN released they had 'From The Director Of Gladiator" on the posters that a little ruins the expectations to the new audience. Fans will watch like me and adore, but others who never seen Ridley Scott doing different prioject will be angry and will never watch another movie of Ridley Scott. THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is one my all time favorites. Perfectly directed and acted. Great battle scenes. Still there are people complaining about the movie.

From the set pictures, I can tell that Ridley is directing this in a different way. Poetic character. He is going to make it like there was ROBIN HOOD who existed. He will make it believable.

Let's wait and see. Ridly and Crowe never disapoints. I really don't care if this movie makes lots of money or not, I just want to see how perfect and poetic it is like other Ridley's epic battle movies like Gladiator, Kingdom Of Heaven.

Do you like Cate Blanchet? - she always signs for projects like this. Always. I love her performance in THE MISSING.
Title: Re: Robin Hood.
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 25, 2010, 04:26:52 PM
I've actually only seen her in the Lord of the Rings and I think one other film, but I thought she was good in those.  She has a sense of royalty about her.

Post by: Rohan on May 15, 2010, 05:10:48 PM
Not bad. This is how you should make a Robin Hood movie. I love how Ridley Scott pays attentio to every little detail. Nice movie.

What's with this guy asking Crowe that he had Irish accent lol. He is asking Russell Crowe and Crowe storms out of the interview cause he gets pissed. If I would be there I would have punched that guy in his face. These media maggots are every where these days. I like it how Crowe says. No, I was going for Italian. lOl.....

Listen to this.

I'm a Robin Hood fan so there's not much to make me enjoy it, though I wouldn't say it was like the best movie in the world. It was definitely better than the new star trek movie. I won't even call it Star Trek. It's blasphemy. lol

It is. I was actually just talking about it. My friends and I were watching Unbreakable and commenting on the beautiful cinematography, and how Night is a master of it, and then it turned to J.J. Abrams' pathetic attempts and the stupid lense flare trick that plagued that pointless film. lol

Save yourself the misery. I was totally set up. My brother, and my high school bestie, the two biggest Trekkers I know, thought it rocked, and I went to see it and had to say "I'm going to have to think about that one." to get people to not ask my opinion.

It took no time to think about it. The minute the Nokia ringtone went off I knew I had been screwed. Now they're both not so enthusiastic about it either, though they don't hate it...yet. lol

Hehee, so this isn't about the Robin Hood movie but it is about Robin Hood in general. I just found out I might get to go to Nottingham during the UK trip next week. :D

Totally went. They had an exhibit from the movie. Wanted to take pictures for you guys but no cameras allowed. :/ I did get a pic with the statue outside though so when I get back to my own computer and can upload...

And I must say...Nottingham is very modern, and very BIG. I was shocked.

Title: Re: Robin Hood.
Post by: Imalshen on July 18, 2010, 03:34:01 AM
It was a small exhibit, just one room. But they had several costumes-Marian's, Robin's, Tuck's, John's and the Sheriff if I remember correctly (John's was all chain mail-how he MOVED in that thing I'll never know). Marian's was surprisingly small. I knew Cate Blanchett was slender, but she probably has some height on me and is just as skinny. Supermodel like, you know?

They also had a few props with an explanation of where they came from and all the effort that went in to designing accurate artifacts. Most were religious articles but there was one box that was very neat. I will have to watch the movie again and see if I spot it.

Robin hood was really a good movie with actions and if there will be a poll for best action movie , I will go for it.
