Rossdale in play for Crusader 'Game'

14 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

With Gwen Stefani poised to make her big-screen debut in Martin Scorsese's Aviator, her husband, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, is following her lead by inking to star in Crusader Entertainment's The Game of Their Lives. The project, being directed by David Anspaugh, is based on the book by Geoffrey Douglas. Adapted by Angelo Pizzo, it's the story of the American soccer team that, in a stunning upset, defeated England in the 1950 World Cup. At that time, the tournament barely registered on America's sports radar, so the United States sent a hastily assembled band of amateur and semiprofessional players, composed chiefly of working-class immigrants. Considered the underdogs, the Americans took on the seemingly unbeatable English side with surprising results. Rossdale, who has an extensive soccer background, will play English team member Stanley Mortenson. Wes Bentley stars along with Gerald Butler, Richard Jenik, Louis Mandylor and Jay Rodan. Crusader topper Howard Baldwin is producing with Karen Baldwin, Greg Johnson and Ginger Perkins. Rossdale is repped by Brillstein-Grey Entertainment. His other credits include The Chris Isaak Show. »

Butler gauging 'Phantom' role

29 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

He's not yet a household face, but Scottish-born actor Gerard Butler has been offered the starring role as the man behind the mask in helmer Joel Schumacher and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical feature The Phantom of the Opera. Butler, who most recently appeared in Reign of Fire, has not decided whether to take the role because he is fielding other offers, among them Crusader Entertainment's The Game of Their Lives. Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries) and Emmy Rossum (Passionada) have emerged as the top choices to play Phantom's female lead, Christine. Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group is producing the project, which goes into production in October. A domestic distributor has yet to come on board. Butler, repped by CAA, Jane Brand of ICM London and manager Alan Siegel, next stars in Paramount Pictures' Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Timeline. »
