On Friday, Universal Pictures is set to release Robin Hood, the fifth collaboration between director Ridley Scott and star Russell Crowe. Working from a script by Brian Helgeland, author of the deconstructionist take on medieval action, A Knight's Tale, the duo created a prequel of sorts to the rob-from-the-rich-give-to-the-poor tale that's been told dozens of times on film before. All of which is why before merry men across the country strap on tights and cue up Bryan Adams on ye olde iPod, Cinematical collected Scott and Crowe's comments about the process of realizing Robin Hood - as both man and myth - on the silver screen.
