Robin Hood movie scheduled to premiere in May 2010

The latest film version of the Robin Hood saga is scheduled to debut in theaters May 14, 2010. The film is directed by Ridley Scott and stars Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett.

From the Internet Movie Database:

The story of how an archer in the service of King Richard the Lionheart became to be known as Robin Hood, the famous archer and outlaw of English Folklore.

Beginning after the Death of King Richard at the Siege of Chalus Chabrol, the film follows Robin on his rise to infamy among the English Barons and the newly crowned King John.

Featuring historically accurate characters such as Sir William Marshall and grounded in reality (in a similar way to Gladiator), this is not Robin Hood as you have seen him before, rather the making of the legend we have come to know him as now.

Trailers from the film are available to view online.
