Russell Crowe-starrer Robin Hood to be shot in Wales, not Sherwood

By Super Admin

London, Mar 30 (ANI): The new version of Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and Vanessa Redgrave, will be shot not in Sherwood Forest but in Wales.

Around 600 people and up to 100 horses will descend upon Pembrokeshire in West Wales in the National Parks Authority of Freshwater West from August to film Sir Ridley Scott's project.

According to project's bosses, the real Sherwood Forest is thought to be unsuitable for filming because of strict conservation laws, which would not permit a large scale "invasion" by film crew and their vehicles, reports The Telegraph.

Bob White, chairman of the World Wide Robin Hood Society, says: "It is a shame that the film is unable to be shot in its traditional location.

"Sherwood Forest today bears little resemblance to the huge expanses of woodland that existed in Robin Hood's day and those remaining parts of the ancient forest are protected within an important heritage conservation site." (ANI)
