Matthew confirms he will attend the Cannes premiere of Robin Hood

Matthew Macfadyen spoke to forum member, Marina, at the stage door and confirmed that he will attend the premiere of Robin Hood at the Cannes Film Festival on 12 May.

A huge thank you to Marina and Luce who are both stuck in London because of the closure of the London airports due to volcanic ash.  They are putting their extra time in London to good use!

Also, our sympathies go out to several Darcylicians who will be missing Private Lives in London because of international flights which have been delayed or canceled. 

Matthew Macfadyen "likely" to attend Cannes Film Festival

Baz Bamigboye, in the Daily Mail, is reporting that Matthew Macfadyen is likely to be attending to premiere of Robin Hood at the Cannes Film Festival on May 12th.

Matthew as the Sheriff of Nottingham

The official website for Robin Hood has been updated and there are a few mentions of Matthew as the Sheriff.  The following can be found among the production notes:

From Lambs and Lions: Casting the Action-Adventure

Matthew Macfadyen, who shot to international acclaim after his portrayal of Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice, stars as the archetypal villain, the Sheriff of Nottingham. Explains Maid Marion herself, Blanchett, of his character and performance: "What I find so interesting about this version of the Sheriff of Nottingham is that it's the weak who are often the most evil, because they're the most compromised.  There's a moment, and it's brilliantly played by Matthew, where he suddenly says, I'm British! No, I'm French!" and he's prepared to go over to whichever side.  It's the weak people from who you have the most to fear."

Robin Hood opens on 14 May, 2010
