We learned the other day that Sienna Miller was up for the role of Maid Marian in the Ridley Scott movie Nottingham, and now The Daily Mail have word that Christian Bale may be donning the tights and playing the iconic Robin Hood. So we have Batman, John Conner and now possibly Robin Hood? Bales agent deserves a HUGE pay rise, and maybe some sexual favours on the side.
The Mail say:
Christian Bale, soon to be seen as the caped crusader in The Dark Knight, is in talks about donning the jolly Lincoln Green outfit of Robin Hood, where he will be part of a menage a trois between Russell Crowe’s Sheriff of Nottingham and Sienna Miller’s Maid Marian.
Nothing is signed for Bale, but director Ridley Scott is exceedingly keen to cast him.
Costume fittings begin next week, so he’ll be either in or out by then. Vanessa Redgrave and William Hurt are also in discussions about being in the film, which is called Nottingham.
Personally I find this unlikely, however it could work out. If Bale does end up playing Robin Hood he will be a very busy man.
