Scott & Crowe Visit Nottingham

Director Ridley Scott and actor Russell Crowe are set to team for a fourth time on Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment’s drama “Nottingham” reports Variety.

Crowe stars as the Sheriff of Nottingham in a revisionist take on the Robin Hood tale, with Nottingham as a noble and brave lawman who labors for a corrupt king and engages in a love triangle with Maid Marion and Robin Hood.

Universal bought the script by Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris a while back with Crowe attached at the time, but Scott’s involvement only emerged over the weekend.

Production will start next year once Scott wraps up work on the DiCaprio CIA thriller “Body of Lies”.
