Robin Hood casting choices slammed
Producers of new movie Robin Hood have been criticised for not casting any English actors in the lead roles.
The tale was originally set in Nottingham, England - and now critics have hit out at filmmakers for not featuring any British stars in the main parts.
Terence Doyle, editor of British Film Magazine, says, "These are frankly bizarre casting choices when you consider the depth of acting talent available in the U.K.
"Once again Robin Hood has been hijacked by Hollywood."
Shooting on the movie, originally titled Nottingham, will begin in April (09).
