First Look: Russell Crowe as Ridley Scott's Robin Hood
Apr 20, 2009 16:58
This is definitely the time where we're getting a lot of first looks from Hollywood! Over on USA Today, they've debuted the first photo of Russell Crowe as Robin Hood in Ridley Scott's version of Robin Hood. We've written plenty about this film for a while now, so I don't think there's much I need to say to introduce this photo, but thankfully producer Brian Grazer walks us through the new look anyway. "He doesn't have the old Robin Hood tights," Grazer says. "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." Oh hell yes, bring it on!
"Oddly, it's a metaphor for today," Grazer tells USA Today. "He's trying to create equality in a world where there are a lot of injustices. He's a crusader for the people, trying to reclaim some of the ill-gotten gains of the wealthy. That's a universal theme." Anyone else out there getting shivers just thinking about seeing a Gladiator-like version of Robin Hood? Because I am! Ridley Scott has directed a few fairly underwhelming film recently (e.g. Kingdom of Heaven, A Good Year, Body of Lies), and nothing has been as good as Gladiator, at least since that hit in 2000, but this time I think he may finally be getting back to that.
