Blanchett is Marian?

02.09.2009

Ridley Scott's much-maligned NOTTINGHAM may be getting a huge boost. Cate Blanchett is in talks to play Maid Marian, a role vacated by Sienna Miller. We all know that Russell Crowe is playing Robin Hood and The Sheriff of Nottingham in the film, but it was actor Mark Strong, who is playing Sir Guy of Gisbourne, who spoke out about Blanchett's possible involvement.

I think Cate Blanchett is set to take the Maid Marian part. She is a wonderful actress and it would make it a much classier film if she was in it.

Ouch. Rumours abound as to why Sienna left the film, with speculation centering around an alleged rift between her and Crowe. We've all heard about Crowe's antics on set. The guy can be a little intimidating I'm sure, but I'd like to see him try and push Blanchett around. Not gonna happen. Let's get this movie made people!

Now wait a second...

I love Cate and think as far as acting ability she is the better of the two. But good actresses can also give shitty performances. Anyone forget her in Indy? She didn't bug me a ton but I wasn't wowed,

As for Sienna, I think if you want a love interest for the film, she'd make a great Marian. I can easily say she's the more attractive of the two and she IS a good actress. Her performances in Layer Cake and Factory Girl were great! I just think Cate can be a bit overrated sometimes. I've

Even Lord of the RIngs (though she was really good in that).

So yes, if I have to pick one of the two, I'd say Sienna Miller all the way.

Miller out, Blanchett in? Sounds good. Miller is not a bad actress, not at all, but when you can bring someone like Blanchett (one of the greatest actresses out there) my intrest goes way up.

And yeah, I kinda feel like a 'Robin Hood' movie. It's not that there has been one good movie about him, isn't it? (except for the children-version from Disney)

as much a I'd like to see this movie... at the same time I don't. I honestly am getting slightly sick of all the different variation of Robin Hood. In on movie he has a muslim sidekick, in another he comes back 30 years later from the Crusades. Eventhough I enjoyed Prince of Theives, I still recognize the mistake that movie was. Even thought I loved Robin And Marian, I still couldnt get over Robin Hood's age. I would love to see a movie based COMPLETELY from the novel. One that doesn't rely on

One that doesn't rely on shitty american accents or a twist. This is primarily why i don't care for this movie. The Sheriff IS! the badguy and Robin IS! the goodguy. The Sheriff is not meant to be this martyr and is not supposed to have Marian as a love interest!. I mean like i said. Ill see it when it comes out but it would be nice if they did make a GOOD, by the book, Robin Hood

Ooh, No Contest.

No Question, Cate. She's Hot, She can actually act and it seems like she's a pretty genuine person. I've never thought Sienna was all that special.

Oh baby....Cate!

When it comes to beauty, sex appeal and talent, there is no competition against Cate Blanchett. What a babe!

Cate Blanchett

No contest as far as I'm concerned. I found Sienna Miller totally forgettable in such movies as... wait... no, can't remember even their names. I think Troy McClure was starring alongside her, that's all.

There's just something about Sienna Miller that bugs me. She seems trashy some how. She's a good actress, but I can't stand watching her.

Blanchett all the way for me.

Sienna Miller, underrated brilliant actress. Cate Blanchett, overrated.

Sienna Miller is one of the 5 most talented actresses working today in my opinion. She was PHENOMENAL in Factory Girl and Interview. I also think she's gorgeous.

As for Cate Blanchett, I think she's a good actress at times but nothing special. WAAAY overrated and she often picks gimmicky roles and gives over the top bug eyed performances and I don't have much appreciation for that kind of acting. Sometimes she is good though. I don't find her to be attractive.
