Sienna was set to play Maid Marian in Ridley Scott's new "Nottingham" flick but left the movie yesterday after being "put on hold" while shooting was pushed back from February to April. Translation: find another gig.
An insider said, "It is a mess. Russell never lost the weight he put on for 'Body of Evidence' - and so the love scenes between him and Sienna would have been laughable. He's so old and fat and she's so young and gorgeous. It's just . . . gross."
"Originally the movie was about a love triangle between Maid Marian, Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham."
"It is now all about Russell's Robin Hood. Literally, 40 pages of script were redone and now are just devoted to him and his massive ego. It's amazing," reports Page Six.
Word around town is that the producers are "looking for an older, plumper actress to play the role so [Crowe] doesn't look like a paunchy grandpa. Someone in her late 30s or early 40s."
Sienna's already out, but that's not the end of it. Apparently Crowe wants director Ridley Scott out of the picture too and several phone calls have been made (behind his back of course) to get a replacement.
Wouldn't it be easier to just replace Russell Crowe. Reality check folks, people don't care about him as much as they used to!
