Sound on Sight Radio Rewind: Episode #205: Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood
Ridley Scott’s man-crush on Russell Crowe has apparently not abated, as he was enlisted to star in Scott’s long-gestating Robin Hood reboot/prequel, which has changed form considerably since its 2007 inception. The film, which is rumored to carry a price tag of around $240 million, seeks to reconcile the myth of the titular figure with the historical realities of the period he was supposed to have existed in. We’ll tell you if the approach yielded anything worthwhile, then we’ll finish off our series on films about art and artists with a look at Julie Taymor’s 2002 biopic Frida, which stars Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo.
