London (ANI): Russell Crowe has signed up to play the Sheriff of
Nottingham in a movie that offers a different take on the Robin
Hood legend. Helming the movie is Ridley Scott, who directed Crowe
in his Oscar winning role in Gladiator. Crowe however, was not
ready to let on too much of the plot when interview by Empire
“I"ve loved that story since I was a kid and this is a really
interesting way of doing it. I"m not saying anymore, but it"s not
what you might expect," The Sun quoted him, as saying. Crowe and
Scott are currently filming 'Body of Lies", with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Their other collaboration - American Gangster – starring Denzel
Washington, will hit theaters this November.
