Ryan Gosling to play Oscar Pistorius in biopic
London: Ryan Gosling and Charlize Theron are being considered by the movie bosses to star as Oscar Pistorius and his late model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in a forthcoming biopic, according to reports.
The 32-year-old actor recently said that he was taking a break from acting but it is believed that he could be tempted to play this high-profile role, The Sun reported.
The 26-year-old sportsperson- currently on bail - denies murder and claims that he mistook Reeva Steenkamp as an intruder.
According to a source, two scripts are currently being developed to tell South Africa's Paralympic hero's story and the fateful Valentine's Day morning in which his girlfriend was shot and killed, with an announcement expected soon from one of the major film studios.
A source said that one of the world's most famous sportsmen was under arrest and a beautiful young woman met a violent death, the scripts began doing the rounds within days of the scandal breaking.
The insider asserted that Gosling has the kind of quiet magnetism that would make this project work - plus there is some mystery about him.
The source added that although Gosling has been saying publicly that he wants to take a break from acting to relax, movie bosses will be falling over themselves to rope him in once the scripts are finalised.
