Crowe will be Sheriff and Robin Hood

RussellCrowe.jpgSome new information about Ridley Scott's Nottingham is out. According to Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe will not only be playing the Sheriff of Nottingham, he'll also be playing Robin Hood himself.

The first part we knew about, but the second is a surprise. Wonder how that will work.

Nottingham director Ridley Scott was talking to MTV Movies Blog about Bodies of Lies, when he dropped the news about Russell Crowe doubling up.

He’s playing both!

Crowe was already down to play the Sheriff of Nottingham. And rumours had already started about who would be playing Robin Hood in the film. Christian Bale's name was mentioned as a possible. But Scott says Crowe will play both roles, while being guarded about how it would work. He says it will be:

...a good old clever adjustment of characters. One becomes the other. It changes.

Sounds like a crazy idea. I wonder how different Crowe will look in each role. Will it work to have the same actor playing both? Can Russell Crowe pull both off?



Devin over at CHUD leaked this quite a while back.

According to him, Crowe isn't playing two different roles in the film. The twist is that Robin Hood is actually the Sheriff.

The twist is that Robin Hood is actually the Sheriff.

@DarthMuppet: Ach! Was this supposed to be a spoiler?!

Russell Crowe's got the accent for Robin Hood (or the sheriff), though he'll probably have to get a bit slimmer than what his recent role in Body of Lies
