Newfoundland's Allan Doyle featured in the film

Director Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood," starring Russell Crowe in the role of the famed outlaw, and featuring Great Big Sea's Alan Doyle as Celtic musician Alan O'Dayle, will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 12.
The festival said Friday that the film will not compete for prizes.
Crowe has already teamed up with Scott many times, in "Gladiator," "A Good Year," "American Gangster" and "Body of Lies."
By playing Robin Hood on screen, Crowe follows in the footsteps of Errol Flynn, Sean Connery and Kevin Costner. Cate Blanchett plays his love interest, Maid Marian.
The festival runs from May 12 to 23.

Organizations: Great Big Sea, Good Year

Geographic location: Cannes, Newfoundland

    Maybe Alan Doyle and Crowe can have the North American premiere here!

    Like the Republic of Doyle down at The Majestic.

    A perfect reason for the Premier and some staff to travel to the South of France.

    Maybe we can set up a Newfoundland pavillion there, to market our tourism and culture.

    Not bad for a boy from Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove.

    Not bad at all.
