Did you see the news that Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott will re-unite for another remake of Robin Hood? The film, scheduled for a May 2010 release, sounds like it will be more Gladiator in feel than the most recent Hood movie (1991), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. That version, as you recall, had Kevin Costner trying to sound British (or, at least that's what it sounded like.) And, in case you're wondering, Cate Blanchett will be Maid Marian to Crowe's Robin.
If Gladiator is any guide, look for plenty of sword play in the new version of Robin Hood.
