Sienna Miller is Maid Marian

Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe are hard at work re-working the Robin Hood story for Nottingham, which will cast the sheriff as a noble lawman struggling under the rule of a corrupt King.

And they’ve found who they think will be the perfect Maid Marian who, in the proud Hood tradition, will form part of a love triangle between the sheriff and Robin: Sienna Miller. Yeah, we can see how Russell Crowe might fall for her.

We’re wondering if, given her recent stint spent kicking arse for Stephen Sommers in GI Joe, Sienna Miller will re-invent Maid Marian as a lethal killing machine…
