Hollywood bad-boys Tom Hardy and Christian Bale have been earmarked to play Reading’s late, great striker Robin Friday on the silver screen.
The story of Royals’ cult hero was penned by journalist and author Paolo Hewitt and Oasis bassist Paul McGuigan in 1996.
After tales of Friday’s legendary status reached tinseltown, film producers and writers have hammered out a script of Friday’s life and are now in the process of sending out their work to prospective actors and directors.
“I read the script in about half an hour and I was in tears by the end of it – it was absolutely fantastic,” Hewitt told the Reading Post.
“Robin was such an ebullient character and whenever anybody spoke about it – scoring the best goal you have ever seen, or dancing naked in a club somewhere, it is always visual with him.
“I think the book really leant itself to a film.” Much like Friday’s life, the money men behind the film aren’t looking at doing things by halves and making a small-scale movie. [Read more…] about Tom Hardy and Christian Bale lined up to play Robin Friday
A 4-year-old Boardman boy with terminal cancer and his family were flown to California this week to meet Batman.
Jayden Barber, who was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, and his family spent Wednesday with superstar actor Christian Bale, according to a Facebook page post by the family.
“Finally can share!!! Christian sent us to LA and we had lunch at Disney club 33 on wed!! He and his family were so awesome and down to earth!!!,” said a post on Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden page.
The family also posted pictures of Bale posing with the family on the site.
Jayden’s favorite character is Batman, and on Aug. 23 the Caped Crusader visited Jayden at the Boardman football stadium. That day was declared Jayden Barber Day in Youngstown.
Last week, Barber’s family said Jayden was in remission.
The community first learned of Jayden and his family in February 2010. Jayden was at Akron Children’s Hospital in Boardman battling bone cancer. One year later, Jayden’s parents learned the chemotherapy for the first cancer had caused a second, different form of cancer called MDS leukemia and this time, it was attacking Jayden’s blood and bone marrow.
Jayden got a bone marrow transplant in February from a female donor, but it was not working well enough. And July 19, doctors told Jayden’s parents their son was terminally ill.
Then last week, new test results showed Jayden’s blood is 99.6 percent donor T-cells, meaning he’s in remission.
Jayden will celebrate his 5th birthday Sept. 17.
t seems everyone has a different favourite to play the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of ‘Fifty Shade Of Grey’, yet more than most apparently are plumping for Batman star Christian Bale.
In a Facebook poll for The Periscope Post, Bale took 33% of the vote, with a third of men and women wanting ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star to take on the role.
Seeing as this is a group that tend to be fans of the Batman films, perhaps they don’t like the idea of their hero swapping his cowl for S&M gear.
Of the 2,229 people surveyed, 17% thought heartbroken Robert Pattinson should put Kristen Stewart behind him by taking things out on whoever plays Anastasia Steele.
Lagging slightly behind were heart throbs Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender on 14% and 11% of the vote respectively.
Chris Rock was the actor people least wanted to see in the red room of pain, clocking only 3% of the vote.
Thomas D. Gommes, Founder and Publisher of The Periscope Post said: “Handsome, young and charming Christian Bale has the ideal characteristics needed for the role of Christian Grey.
“Men want to be him and women want to be with him – it is therefore no surprise he took a 1/3 of the votes.”
Entertainmentwise’s own poll saw Ian Somerhalder top the vote with 27%, with Gosling and Pattinson again registering high voteshares in second and third place
The full results were:
1. Christian Bale 33%
2. Robert Pattinson 17%
3. Ryan Gosling – 14%
4. Michael Fassbender – 11%
5. Bradley Cooper – 10%
6. Justin Timberlake – 6%
7. Zach Galifianakis – 6%
8. Chris Rock – 3%
