Director Ridley Scott and actor Russell Crowe reunite for their fifth big-screen outing, a retelling of the Robin Hood legend featuring the GLADIATOR star in the titular role. A bowman in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion, virtuous rogue Robin Hood rises from an unlikely background to become a hero to the impoverished people of Nottingham and lover to the beautiful Lady Marian (Cate Blanchett). Ridley Scott's film differentiates itself from any other previous recount of the Robin Hood's tale by catching the hero in his very making. We witness the events that forged his ideals and that finally led him to become the famous kind-hearted thief that populated so many fireplace stories. But Robin Hood is also a man, and Scott is more than keen to investigate this dimension by delicately narrating the hero's blossoming feelings for Lady Marian. Cyrus Voris, Ethan Reiff, and Brian Helgeland collaborate on the screenplay for a costume adventure produced by Brian Grazer (FROSTNIXON, AMERICAN GANGSTER).
