Crowe, Howard eyeing ‘The Power of Duff’

Russell Crowe and Ron Howard are considering “The Power of Duff,” a Stephen Belber-scripted drama that Universal purchased this month. Negotiations are just getting under way for Crowe to play a TV news anchor whose grief over his father’s death prompts him to pray aloud during newscasts. When his prayers begin getting answered, the newsman becomes a most controversial TV figure. The project would be the third teaming for Crowe and Howard after “A Beautiful Mind” and the upcoming “Cinderella Man.”
