First Photo Of Crowe As “Robin Hood”

The first photo of a notably slimmer Russell Crowe in costume on the set of Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” has emerged over at USA Today.

“He doesn’t have the old Robin Hood tights. He’s got armor. He’s very medieval. He looks, if anything, more like he did in Gladiator than anything we’re used to seeing with Robin Hood” said producer Brian Grazer describing Hood’s new costume.

Grazer adds that Cate Blanchett’s character won’t be some whimpering damsel in distress – “We just shot a scene where Maid Marion fires a flaming bow and arrow into the night sky.”
