Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated film, Robin Hood is set to open at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. The Brian Grazer produced film starring Russell Crowe as the titular character and Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian will be shown on opening night, May 12th, two whole days before its worldwide release.
How lucky are they??!!
Written by Brian Helgleland, the new version of the classic story is an action-packed look at the well-known tale about a thief-turned-hero in 13th century England trying to save a village and earn the affections of his lady love. Crowe isn’t the first to play the heroic outlaw; Robin Hood’s tights have previously been worn by Errol Flynn, Sean Connery and Kevin Costner.
The Festival de Cannes is set for May 12-23.
