Crikey: Russell Crowe Buys Rights To Steve Irwin Biopic

Apparentl y they were freinds with common interests. One fought crocodiles and snakes, the other took on just about everyone else.

According to a report on the Sydney Morning Herald's website, the Oscar-winning Gladiator actor is already in talks with Universal about the project, in which he wants to play the maverick wildlife expert. Crowe was a friend of the celebrated crocodile hunter...

An anonymous "insider" says that Crowe once told Irwin that he wanted to play him in a movie version of his life. "It's not about money for Russell - it's about honouring his friend."

One problem: Irwin was lighthearted and funny. Crowe is brooding and angry, and has not to my knowlege ever played a character who wasn't brooding and angry.

Germaine Greer, meanwhile, is launching a rival project based on the life-rights of the stingray. The film is tenatively named, Stingray Avenger, and mock-up publicity posters promise "This time it's personal."
