Long, long ago I posted a quick article that Ridley Scott was working with Russell Crowe on a new Robin Hood film called Nottingham. And Sienna Miller was slated to play Marian. Sienna’s ok but I just thought she couldn’t quite stack up to Russell Crowe. And then there was a lot of drama around the production – rumors that Crowe was way overweight and was unwilling to work out, and that he and Ridley were fighting. And then recently word came that Sienna Miller was let go from the film altogether. And the rumors further say that it was creepy and gross seeing young, pretty Sienna making out with sloppy, heavy, Russell. But NOW word comes that the awesomely awesome Cate Blanchett is in talks to replace her. And THAT, my friends, is a movie I’d see opening weekend. Though, to be honest, I’d probably watch “Cate Reads the Phonebook: The MOVIE!” if such a thing existed. I do like my strong
British Aussie actresses.
