The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed a report that first appeared at Defamer – Ridley Scott’s Nottingham has been delayed. The film will star Russell Crowe as Sheriff of Nottingham and Sienna Miller as Maid Marian.
According to the reports, the project had been heading for a mid-August start date in London, but has now been put on hold. The trade says, however, that it has not been determined if this means a postponement or a cancellation.
Nottingham, which Universal and Imagine are producing, has been one of the handful of high-profile productions determined to push ahead despite the labor uncertainty surrounding the current stand-off between producers and SAG.
It is not yet known what factors led to the current decision to put the brakes on the production.
