The Irish actor and Leo are set to portray Alexander the Great in separate movies next year. Colin will star in Oliver Stone’s version, while Leo will take direction from “Moulin Rouge” director Baz Luhrmann. At the moment, the edge goes to Colin, whose movie is scheduled to go into production first.
The Irish hottie reportedly won the part after what has been described as an “extensive and persuasive” screen test with the conspiracy-lovin’ director. We have one suggestion for Colin: don’t mention the Warren Commission around Stone.
