Search for Robin Hoods Maid Marian continuesJanuary 24th, 2009 - 3:11 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 24 (ANI): The search for Robin Hoods Maid Marian continues after English actress Sienna Miller dropped out of the Ridley Scott directed movie Nottingham.
The reason why petite Miller has dropped out is suggested to be because she seems to be dwarfed on screen by Aussie actor Russell Crowe, reports Fox News.
Brit actress Kate Winslet, who was nominated for Best Actress in The Reader, was next offered the role, but she turned it down.
The role has now been offered to Aussie actress Cate Blanchett, who won an Oscar for her role in The Aviator in the Best Supporting Actress category.
Though there has not been a confirmation as to whether Blanchett will accept the role or not, producers are already making a back up plan, with Brit actress Rachel Weisz being next on their mind to get the offer. (ANI)
