New Robin Hood

Hmmm, so I was looking over the wikipedia article for the new "Robin Hood" film today... it looks like it's going to be better than I originally thought. The cast is really quite impressive.

Impressive, but two casting choices are making me laugh. #2, Oscar Isaacs (Joseph from the Nativity Story) as Prince John, and #1, Matthew McFayden (Mr. Darcy from the 2005 Pride and Prejudice) as the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Wow. That's just a little scary.

Wowzers! :O

But I have to admit, maybe the serious tone will be a good step away from the classical romantic idea. (Romantic in the sense of the 1930's Robin Hood. Colorful, bright, and fun.)

I have to admit Ridley Scott is a good director, though his historical films may be questioned for their accuracy. But even then, both Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven were impressive visual and cinematic works. (Aside from their inaccuracy.)

Though I think Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett as Robin Hood and Maid Miriam will be interesting.
