Mark Strong will portray Guy of Gisborne in Ridley Scott’s Nottingham, according to Digital Spy.
“I heard a rumour that I was going to get shot in the face by a cross bolt in the first ten pages and end up hideously disfigured through the rest of the movie,” said Strong. “There’s so much speculation around it at the moment, but I do know that he’s a bad guy.”
“The script is still fluid, but it’s essentially the Guy of Gisborne character. In the synopsis I got, he’s called Conrad, I don’t know why!
Strong’s career has taken a big step up recently. He had a big role in Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies and is currently filming Sherlock Holmes with Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr. He will also play mob boss Frank D’Amico in Matthew Vaughns Kick-Ass.
Meanwhile, director Ridley Scott spoke about the rumours that the film had been delayed due to the leaves in Sherwood Forest not being green enough.
“I really don’t care! I don’t give a s**t whether they’re red leaves or pink leaves.”
…well…at last that’s cleared up!
