Damon And Crowe In The Running For WikiLeaks Role!
The WikiLeaks tale took another twist today when Julian Assange failed in his appeal against extradition from the UK to Sweden and William Hill think that Hollywood's biggest names will be queuing up to play the fiery Australian. Hills currently have Russell Crowe and Matt Damon as the 6/1 joint favourites while Leonardo Di Caprio and Bradley Cooper are both 8/1.
"The WikiLeaks movie rights have been snapped up by Dreamworks and with Stephen Spielberg possibly at the helm, they will be able to attract the biggest names," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "Russell Crowe has the fact that he is Australian on his side while Matt Damon has the advantage of looking like the man himself. It's a wide open race!"
