Since it was Russell Crowe who killed Kevin Durand's character in 3:10 to Yuma, I guess it makes sense that Durand will now play one of Crowe's Merry Men. But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.
Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand, Alan Doyle for Robin Hood
Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand and Alan Doyle have been cast to play Merry Men in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood movie. If you've been keeping track of the production, you will remember that it was once called Nottingham. While I'm calling it Robin Hood, that might not even be the title anymore.
Russell Crowe is set to star with Cate Blanchett onboard to play Maid Marian.
Scott is producing with Imagine's Brian Grazer.
Grimes has been cast in the role of Will Scarlet, a skilled swordsman and Hood's nephew. Durand is playing Little John, Hood's right-hand man. He is best known in the legends for fighting a duel with Hood using quarterstaves while trying to cross a river. Doyle is playing Alan a Dayle,CQ who in lore was a roving minstrel and needed help when his love was being forced to marry another man.
Expect the casting updates for Robin Hood to begin arriving in rapidfire fashion as the production approaches it's scheduled start date, this April.
