Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) has been brought on board to rewrite Nottingham, Universal Pictures’ revisionist take on the legend of Robin Hood, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Russell Crowe is starring, Ridley Scott is directing and Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer is producing.
Crowe stars as the Sheriff of Nottingham in a scenario that sees him more noble lawman than an evil king’s right-hand man and facing off with a more shadier Robin Hood in the Sherwood Forest.
Universal is hoping to being production early next year.
