USA Today has our first look at Russell Crowe as Robin Hood in director Ridley Scott’s upcoming, and still untitled, Robin Hood project (which hits theaters on May 14, 2010). Here are some excerpts from the article:
“He doesn’t have the old Robin Hood tights,” says producer Brian Grazer. “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.”
One more quote from Grazer, and a full look at the photo, after the jump.
“Oddly, it’s a metaphor for today,” Grazer says. “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.”
