Danny Huston is joining the cast of the upcoming Ridley Scott film Robin Hood, which is currently shooting in England, says the folks at The Hollywood Reporter.

Huston, who was most recently seen playing William Stryker in X-Men Origins: Wolverine earlier this summer and has both Edge of Darkness and Clash of the Titans on the horizon, will step into the famous chain-mail gear of King Richard, also known as Richard the Lionheart. He will carry the torch of cinematic King Richards, one that has been carried before by Sean Connery (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves), Richard Harris (Robin and Marian) and Patrick Stewart (Robin Hood: Men in Tights).

Huston joins Russell Crowe, who plays the bow-wielding hero, Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian, Scott Grimes as Will Scarlet, Kevin Durand as Little John and William Hurt as William Marshall. Mark Strong will also star, with Imagine’s Brian Grazer producing.

Robin Hood is scheduled for release on May 14, 2010.
