Ridley Scott has insisted his Robin Hood is the most realistic incarnation of the character yet.
Russell Crowe stars in the highly anticipated blockbuster, due out this summer.
Director Ridley said of the lead role: "He's a guy who's been on the road, as opposed to a guy walking around with a feather in his hat and wearing a little green skirt - I never liked that Robin Hood, I couldn't buy it."
He went on: "The film starts to build the process of how Robin becomes Robin Hood. In a funny way, it's like a prequel to Robin Hood."
:: Robin Hood is due out in cinemas on May 14.
