London, May 15 (ANI): Director Ridley Scott believes Robin Hood truly existed.
The Brit hopes his new film on the folklore legend will arouse interest among historians.
“On this one (film), I wanted to go more real, because I really believe he existed. The ones (films) to date always treated Robin Hood like a myth, part of a fairy story,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling TV show Access Hollywood.
He added: “I never liked the green tights and I didn”t like the feather in the hat. It didn”t work for me. Even as a kid, it was not my idea of Robin Hood.”
The film got screened at this year”s Cannes Film Festival in France on Wednesday. (ANI)
