A few months ago, MTV reported that Russell Crowe was going to play both the Sheriff and Robin Hood in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Nottingham. This led to many questions about how that would be possible, and now Brian Grazer has told MTV more of the plot:
“The two role confusion is that what Robin Hood does is he sees Nottingham in battle very early in the movie and Nottingham dies. And Robin Hood takes over the identity of Nottingham. Thats how it plays out.” Grazer went on to call the film “an origin story” for the characters.
Grazer added that Brian Helgeland is doing the final rewrite and that shooting will start in March of next year.
