Although in July will be presented under the command of director Darren Aronofsky on the set of New York’s biblical themed drama “Noah“, Russell Crowe is tempted to accept the role of media mogul Rupert Murdoch in a new biopic, according to Daily Star.
The script signed by rookie Leon Lecash memory card is based on “Good Times, Bad Times” of the author Harold Evans, former editor of The Times, focusing on the conflict that erupted between two men on the editorial takeover. For the role of Harold Evans is concerned the Oscar winner Colin Firth.
“Recent stories about Rupert Murdoch-owned companies in the UK and the U.S. have reminded the public about events that occurred 30 years ago. I always noticed the dramatic potential volume of Good Times, Bad Times. Now, as it branches daily events, I realized that there’s no more appropriate to translate the big screen this spiritual story about justice and revenge”, revealed Lecash Leon, who is convinced that shooting will begin before at the end of 2012.
Russell Crowe has completed the work on action film “The Man with the Iron Fists”, at the musical “Les Miserables“, the thriller “Broken City” and reboot “Man of Steel”, and prepares to start filming the fantasies “Noah” and “Winter’s Tale”.
To refresh your memory, note that Rupert Murdoch is founder and president of News Media Trust Corporation, the second media conglomerate in the world in terms of size. In the 50′s and 60′s, acquired several Australian newspapers back home and New Zealand, and in 1969 expanded its influence in the UK, taking the News of the World and The Sun. In 1974, Murdoch moved to New York and obtained U.S. citizenship about over 11 years and buying the prestigious Times.
