Oscar-winning Australian actor Russell Crowe is in talks with Universal Pictures about a Steve Irwin biopic reports In Touch Weekly.

Crowe has repeatedly spoken of his affection for friend Irwin, better known as The Crocodile Hunter to millions of fans. Irwin was tragically killed by a stingray in a marine accident the other week, aged 44.

An insider said “It’s not about money for Russell – it’s about honouring his friend. Steve once told Russell that he wanted him to play him in a movie version of his life.”

This would be really good if it was true. Russell Crowe goes completely into the character that he would be playing, which is what he does with all his films so you know you would be getting a true depiction of The Croc Hunter.
