OMG! is reporting that actors
Tom Hardy Logan Marshall-Green and Wyatt Russell are finalizing deals to play Derek Sanderson and Bobby Orr in the indie flick “Turk”.
Logan Marshall-Green as Derek Sanderson
Wyatt Russell as Bobby Orr
The film will be based on the book “Crossing the Line”, which details the self-destructive, downward spiral of Boston Bruin Derek Sanderson and his ultimate redemption with the help of his superstar teammate Bobby Orr. Production is supposed to start in the fall in Boston.
Marshall-Green is currently training on ice to prep for the role, but Russell isn’t going to have to prep that much. He played collegiate hockey at University of Alabama-Huntsville and pro hockey in Canada and Europe.
Oh and if his name looks familiar, it should. He’s also the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, brother to Kate & Oliver Hudson.
So WUYS, what do you think of the casting choices?Tags: Bobby Orr, Boston Bruins, crossing the line, derek sanderson, edward burns, hockey movies, turk
