Cate Blanchett is set to reprise her role as Galadriel for Peter Jackson’s, “The Hobbit”. So far, two cast members from the original trilogy will be in the “Hobbit”. I’m pretty sure Ian McKellen is still playing Gandalf too.
Galadriel wasn’t a character in “The Hobbit” book, so Peter must of wrote her in the script somehow. Typical hollywood changing things around as usual.
Ridley Scott’s version of the “Robin Hood” story, which stars Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, will get a theater wide release date on May 14, 2010.
Lets hope Ridley does a great job with this flick. I think “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves” with Kevin Costner is an amazing flick. I love it to death, so hopefully Ridley’s version will be just as good as that one.
Ridley Scott is a great film maker, he’s made many fantastic films.
My top 5 favorite Ridley Scott directed films are here:
1. American Gangster
3. Blade Runner
4. Legend (Tom Cruise/Tim Curry fairytale adventure)
5. Thelma and Louise
Actress Cate Blanchett, has signed on to star alongside Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott’s directed, “Robin Hood”. The film was originally titled, “Nottingham”, but due to the film being about Robin Hood, Ridley has decided to change the title.
Those who are not familiar with Cate Blanchett’s work, she is a wonderfully talented actress who has starred in such films as: “The Lord of the Rings trilogy” (she played Galadriel), “The Missing”, “I’m Not There”, “Indy 4 and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, etc.
Very nice addition to the cast! What do you think?
Think Ridley’s version of the Robin Hood story will be better than “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” that starred Kevin Costner? I thought “Prince of Thieves” was phenonemal and an incredible movie. “Prince Of Thieves” is one of my favorite films of all times as well.
We’ll have to wait to see how Ridley is going to pull this off.
