Miller is Maid Marian

06.18.2008

Sienna Miller Sexy British minx Sienna Miller has revealed to BBC News that she'll be portraying Maid Marian, the object of both Robin Hood's and the Sheriff of Nottingham's affection, in the upcoming Ridley Scott directed and Russell Crowe starring action drama NOTTINGHAM. The story puts a twist on the ole Robin Hood robbing from the rich and giving to the poor tale by making Hood the bad guy and Nottingham the stoic, noble protagonist whom (presumably) Marian wants to bang. Miller also mentions that with the looming SAG strike threatening to once again send Hollywood into creative chaos the likes of which makes the previous writer's strike look like peanuts, there's a possibility, albeit very small, that the film won't make it to production. In the meantime, we can see Miller's smoking hot ass in ridiculously tight leather as the villainous Baroness in the upcoming G.I. JOE adaptation.

IMHO there hasn't been a decent Robin Hood since Michael ('Robin of Sherwood') Praed in the early '80s. So, instead of a revisionist Hood, I'd rather see a more classic take on the character.

I mean, seriously, who've we had since Praed? Kevin Costner (which is like casting Clint Eastwood as Sherlock Holmes)? And that annoying, little hobbit in the current BBC production?

Sigh.

My interest is piqued somewhat, although I can't say I'm wild about a love triangle complicating things. Sometimes that stuff works, but I can't keep but think it'll be a medieval "Departed" sans undercover cops.

I rather liked Robert Shaw's rendition of the sheriff in "Robin and Marian," another atypical telling of the legend of Robin Hood.

She looks good, AND she's a good actress (if not great, however). Ridley Scott is a good director, but he has a bit too much of an ego in his films at times. And Russell Crowe is always, ALWAYS *great,* he's one of my favorite actors currently working.

So why aren't I pumped? Simply put, I just don't know this movie is a good idea. It goes against the entire idea of Robin Hood. If, perhaps, it turns out that the Sheriff eventually realizes WHY Robin Hood is doing what he's doing and it

If, perhaps, it turns out that the Sheriff eventually realizes WHY Robin Hood is doing what he's doing and it gets revealed that Robin Hood isn't a bad guy, then maybe this will turn out to be pretty good. But this conservative, right-wing take on the story? No, I'm sorry, that principle doesn't work. Next thing you know, they'll make a movie about how Jesus was the villain. ...hmmmmm...
