Cate Blanchett to Play Maid Marian?


UK’s The Telegraph talked to actor Mark Strong about who may be taking over the role of Maid Marian in director Ridley Scott’s Nottingham now that Sienna Miller is out.

“I think Cate Blanchett is set to take the Maid Marian part,” said Strong, who is expected to play Sir Guy of Gisbourne. “She is a wonderful actress and it would make it a much classier film if she was in it,” he is quoted as saying.

Russell Crowe toplines the film, written by Brian Helgeland and targeted for a 2010 release.
