There is a rumor floating around the net that Ridley Scott has decided who he wants to play Robin Hood, it is none other than Christian Bale. For those who may not know Ridely Scott is making a revisionist tale of the Robin Hood story called Nottingham.  In the film The Sheriff of Nottingham, played by Russel Crowe, is the star of the film and it is told from his perspective.  Nottingham is the hero in this film!  Maid Marion, played by Sienna Miller, would be a whore and Robin Hood would be just a thief.  He would rob from not just the rich but also the poor and do many other unspeakable acts.  Bale would be a great choice since he knows how to add depth to a character and can really have fun with it.  Hopefully the rumor will be confirmed, and another iconic character will be revitalized by Bale, who is already doing it with Batman in The Dark Knight and is soon to be doing it as John Connor in Terminator 4: Salvation.
