Trouble in 'Nottingham': Is Ridley Scott's Robin Hood on the Rocks? A note slipped over the Defamer transom this afternoon hints that all is not well in Nottingham , Ridley Scott's reimagining of the Robin Hood legend which was set to begin shooting with Russell Crowe and a really, really, really excited Sienna Miller sometime next month. But we're hearing now that the film — which twists Crowe's Sheriff of Nottingham as the hero against Robin Hood's ruthless thief — is postponed indefinitely. SAG strike fears, as Miller alluded to in June ? Unavailable historical background on Maid Marian's merkin ? Inquiries to Universal (which last year paid seven figures for the script ) and Scott's pals at Imagine Entertainment weren't immediately returned, leaving us in the lurch for a long weekend to come. Alas, we'll always have Costner .
