There are few things that are a given in Hollywood. If Kate Winslet is in it, there's like a 95% chance that she's going to be taking off her clothes, even if she's dead. And if there's a role for a strong British woman, Cate Blanchett is going to snatch it up.
Blanchett, the Academy Award winning actress who twice played Queen Elizabeth on film, has been cast as Maid Marian in Robin Hood. You might know Robin Hood as the Ridley Scott movie once called Nottingham in which Russell Crowe was going to play both the roles of Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Since then, the name has changed and Scott has come to his senses about the dual roles. Does this casting make you want to see it any more?
