Russell Crowe Is Making a Bill Hicks Biopic, Which Makes Sense


Early next year, fake gladiator Russell Crowe is set to make his directorial debut with a movie about comedy legend Bill Hicks. The film was written by Mark Staufer, a screenwriting newbie/high school friend of Crowe’s. Crowe was originally rumored to play Hicks but that’s thankfully no longer the case. Hicks does have a very interesting, tragic story and would’ve undoubtedly hated however this film will get marketed.
