Russell Crowe as Robin Hood -- FIRST LOOK
Here is the very first picture of Russell Crowe in Robin Hood, the upcoming flick which reunites the 45-year-old Gladiator star with director Ridley Scott.
“He doesn’t have the old Robin Hood tights,” producer Brian Grazer tells USA Today of the bandit’s updated wardrobe. “He’s got armor. He’s very medieval. He looks, if anything, more like he did in Gladiator than anything we’re used to seeing with Robin Hood.”
“Oddly, it’s a metaphor for today,” Grazer adds. “He’s trying to create equality in a world where there are a lot of injustices. He’s a crusader for the people, trying to reclaim some of the ill-gotten gains of the wealthy. That’s a universal theme.”
Robin Hood is set for a 2010 release and also stars Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian.
