Russell Crowe in Talks to Join David Oyelowo in 'Arc of Justice'

Russell Crowe is in talks to star in the upcoming Arc of Justice film based on the groundbreaking real life Clarence Darrow-Ossin Sweet civil rights cases.

David Oyelowo has already signed on to star in the film.

Arc of Justice is based on Kevin Boyle’s book “Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age” and follows the story of the civil rights case.

The film centers “on a racial incident in 1925 Detroit that put African American doctor Ossian Sweet (David) on the stand for murder. His defense was funded by the nascent National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and led by Clarence Darrow (Russell),” Variety reports.
