Rupert Murdoch Might Be Played By Russell Crowe In An Upcoming Movie

Russell Crowe playing Rupert Murdoch in movie

No deals are in place yet, but sources are suggesting that Russell Crowe is in talks to win another Oscar play Rupert Murdoch in a movie.

The proposed film is based off of a memoir by Harold Evans, a British editor who resigned from Murdoch's Sunday Times due to "unacceptable pressure."

Good Times, Bad Times documents their tense 14-year relationship along with shady dealings between the Australian media tycoon and then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Although no script has been written (or writer hired, for that matter), a source has said, "You have to be brave to play someone like Murdoch. Russell can do it."

Colin Firth is rumored to be in consideration to star opposite Crowe as Evans and we hear that the film will also tackle News Corp's recent phone hacking scandal.

U innerested in seeing a dramatization of what went down behind the scenes at one of London's biggest newspapers?

This is incredibly, incredibly sad.

How many more lives is this mess going to ruin?

As everyone knows, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire has been absolutely devastated since the phone-hacking scandal prompted more investigations into the immoral - and sometimes illegal - practices in which many staffers partook, which has led to News of the World being scrapped and the arrests of eleven current and former employees of The Sun on suspicion of bribery, and now, it appears that it has taken its toll mentally on at least two senior journalists, who have reportedly attempted suicide.
