Sienna Miller Cast as Maid Marian in Nottingham

Sienna Miller will play Marian to Russell Crowe's Sheriff of Nottingham, BBC News reports today. Miller confirmed recently that barring any actors strike, she'll take on the role of Maid Marian in a version of the Robin Hood story titled Nottingham. Oscar-winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland is crafting the script (he won the little gold man in 1997 for L.A. Confidential) and Sir Ridley Scott is reportedly signed on to direct. BBC News describes the plot:

The movie is a twist on the classic story, with the Sheriff of Nottingham cast as a sympathetic figure up against a not-so-heroic Robin Hood.

I know there are some mixed feelings out there about Sienna Miller, so tell me: What do you think about her playing Maid Marian?

I can't believe she will be playing the part of Maid Marion in the movie Nottingham. #1. She can't act. #2. Maid Marion was supposedly, demure, chaste and maidenly. Sluttyienna couldn't act that part with eons of acting lessons, it's not in her realm of thought! #3. I have to agree with phoenix1980 that she is box office poison. Director Ridley Scott and Universal Studios have made a mistake in choosing her for the role. To tell her employers how you feel write to: Ronald Meyer, President and COO - Universal Studios - 100 Universal City Plaza - Universal City - Los Angeles, CA 91608 and to: Imagine Entertainment - 9465 Wilshire Blvd. - Beverly Hills, CA 90212. Let them know what you think. Most of her work has been shelved pending the storm surrounding her affair/affairs. I hope anything to do with her stays on the shelf!

They need to get rid of her if they hope to make any money off of this movie. She is box office poinson. She is supposed to play an innocent woman of virtue? Please!!!

Meh. I don't have any strong feelings either way for Sienna, but I think Robin Hood may be best in animated form. :P

Does not really matter to me. The only version of Robin Hood I have ever liked in the Disney one!

I'll admit that I only took interest in this post because I saw the animated Marian picture. Hehe.

And Kate Winslet would've been good for this!

Yeah she's not a good actress, and she irritates me because she kind of has the Jessica Alba problem - whining about being famous for her looks/personal life and not being taken seriously, when you kinda need serious talent for that. I'd rather actresses be celebrated for the right things, and we can get rid of the Siennas and the Albas and everyone else that has style but not substance.

To me Sienna just seems one noted. I'm not a big biel or alba fan really, I just hate when it seems like we only see the same handful of people doing movies over and over. Can't we branch out? There's plenty of people that could rise to the occasion if given the opportunity. And a role like Maid Marian? I feel like she'll just end being bratty

I don't understand the hate on Sienna Miller. I think she is great, much better than other famed actresses (Jessica Biel & Jessica Alba... anyone?) who cannot even convince you of their role, no matter how small...

I love Sienna in anything, so i'll see it. But it'll be live action, not cartoon right?

I don't like Sienna and I don't think she can act. It's like what any movie with an english lead is either her or keira knightly? I'd like to see some other people too jeez. You know, like talented ones

You know what, being a Nottingham girl, I'm normally anti- Robin Hood films as they're so far removed from the story and cast a load of American actors who don't even attempt a vaguely English accent. So Sienna and Ridley are good for me. I'm not saying I'll see it but I'm content. :)

raieven — I'm assuming it's for adults, though I don't really know. I just found it humorous to put Sienna's picture next to the animated Maid Marian. :P

Love it! So excited. Sienna is a fabulous actress. I took a Robin Hood literature class in college and was fascinated by all the different takes on a famous character. I'll be there opening day!
