Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood gets its Merry Men

Scott’s Robin Hood recently signed on its Maid Marian, so it is about time they got around to filling out Robin’s band of Merry Men. Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand and Alan Doyle have all been signed on in supporting roles.

MovieWeb offers:

Robin Hood has signed on Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand and Alan Doyle as the group of adventurers in director Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood tale for Universal and Imagine, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Russell Crowe toplines the movie, which is being billed as a retelling of the origins of the key characters of the Robin Hood legend. Cate Blanchett is on board as Maid Marian in the project written by Brian Helgeland.

Scott Grimes will be playing Will Scarlet, which in this incarnation will be Robin’s nephew, not half bastard brother.

Durand will be Little John, which is fitting for his size. I just hope they don’t make him as dimwitted as he was in Wild Hogs.

And in a strange fitting twist, Alan Doyle, a musician (Great Big Sea) will be playing Alan Dayle, the Minstrel.

I have always been a fan of Robin Hood movies and TV shows (BBC makes some great ones) and with Russell Crowe on board with this and a well shaped up crowd of Merry Men, this movie is coming together well.
