Variety is reporting that Cate Blanchett has been cast as Maid Marian in Ridley Scott’s upcoming take on the Robin Hood saga. Russell Crowe is already attached to play Robin Hood in the film, which had originally been called Nottingham but is currently untitled. Filming begins in April with Brian Grazer (Frost/Nixon) producing and an estimated $130 million budget. Sienna Miller had been attached to the role of Marian but left the project last year.
