Director Ridley Scott to miss “Robin Hood” screening at Cannes Film Festival

HollywoodNews.com: Opening night without the film’s director? At Cannes, this would be a disappointment.
Having just arrived in Paris, I am now getting all kinds of calls about the impending festival of festivals. But I am hearing that knee replacement surgery has made it just about a mission imposible for Oscar winner Ridley Scott to make it Cannes on Wednesday for the premiere of his new blockbuster, “Robin Hood.”
And Scott, as we all know, loves France. He made a film in Provence several years ago just so he could spend time here.
The rest of the cast is on its way from various points in the world. Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt, Max von Sydow, Oscar Isaac, are all expected to drive the crowds crazy on Wednesday on the red carpet leading up to the Palais des Festivals.
