Actor reportedly considering making directorial debut on movie based on story of 1974 Symbionese Liberation Army shootout
Russell Crowe is considering making his feature directorial debut on the period cop film 77, according to Deadline.
The screenplay is based on a story by James Ellroy, whose novel La Confidential was adapted for the 1997 Curtis Hanson film in which Crowe starred. It will connect two stories from 1974 which drew public attention at the time: the unsolved murder of an La police officer and a notorious shootout between members of "leftwing revolutionary unit" the Symbionese Liberation Army and the Lapd. The firefight, one of the largest in Us history, saw more than 50,000 rounds of gunfire exchanged and resulted in the deaths of five members of the group.
Crowe may also take a role in the film, whose events will be seen through the eyes of two police partners, one black and one white.
