RUSSELL Crowe has been lined up to play Rupert Murdoch on the big screen.
Colin Firth is reportedly the lead contender for the role of Evans.
The film will focus on the pair’s relationship, specifically Evans’ fight with Murdoch over editorial control.
Leon Lecash will pen the script, and he believes that the film will begin shooting by the end of the year.
“Recent stories surrounding Rupert Murdoch’s companies both here and in America have brought the events of almost 30 years ago back into sharp focus,” Lecash said.
“I have always realized the dramatic potential of Good Times, Bad Times,” he added. “Now, as events unfold daily, I realized the time could never be better to bring this story of ultimate justice and spiritual vindication to the screen.” –SS
