The BBC recently spoke with Sienna Miller who revealed that she will be playing the role of Maid Marian in the Ridley Scott movie Nottingham. Miller will star alongside Russell Crowe, who is expected to play the Sheriff of Nottingham.
“It’s happening. I just found out. It’s the most exciting news in the world.”
She added: “It’s ridiculous. But there’s this looming actor’s strike, so it’s not 100% sure that it’s going to be made, but it’s looking pretty certain.”
Miller, who is currently promoting her new film The Edge of Love, said she “could not have a better part” and working with Crowe and Ridley was “as good as it gets”.
To say she only became famous because Jude Law cheated on her with a nanny is quite good. She’s got some decent roles out of it, including G.I Joe where she gets to wear leather and look good all day. Maybe her role as Maid Marian is a way of her saying ‘Yes, I am sexy as hell and allowed someone famous to penertate me but that doesn’t mean I cant pretend to be someone else. By that I mean act’.
I suppose we’ll have to wait to see what the situation with the actors strike is before we hear anything concrete on Nottingham. I wonder who will end up playing Robin Hood? Jude Law?
