Charisma vaccuum Sienna Miller has quit upcoming movie Nottingham amid rumours of a rift with co-star Russell Crowe (shocking that someone not getting on with Crowe!). The pair was due to star in the new Ridley Scott-directed picture, which tells the story of mythical English outlaw Robin Hood.

Crowe is to tackle the title role, and that of the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, while Miller was due to play love interest, Maid Marian. But the Alfie star has now dropped out of the picture, which is due to begin filming in England in March, amid growing speculation about tension between Crowe and the rest of the team.

A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, “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.”

A representative for Miller confirmed she has quit the picture, insisting the actress is “fine and about to sign on to two other movies.” And a spokesperson for the movie denied “these rumours” of tensions amongst the cast, saying, “Nottingham is moving ahead with Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott.”

I can’t help feeling torn over this project, I’d love to see a big budget update on the legend but Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a film close to my heart and Crowe is terrible when he’s at his most overblown…we shall see anyway and the lack of Miller is only a good thing!
