Robin Hood, Cannes Opener


Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe's big-budget retelling of Robin Hood was announced this morning as the opening-night selection of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. It's a total 180-degree turn from last year's opener Up, bringing bloody, epic, Hollywood-style action to the Croisette on May 12. Not a bad coup for Universal Pictures, either, which could stand to rob a little from the rich right about now. [THR]
