QUICK TAKES

Crowe enters 'State of Play'

December 04, 2007|John Horn

Russell Crowe will replace Brad Pitt in the film adaptation of the British miniseries "State of Play," Universal Studios announced Monday.

Pitt had been slated to star opposite Edward Norton, Helen Mirren and Rachel McAdams for director Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland") but left the project citing script concerns, a problem exacerbated by the Writers Guild of America strike. When he departed, Universal said it was considering suing the actor.

Crowe, who stars in Universal's "American Gangster," is set to begin production on "State of Play" this month.
