[New Film planned on Lipstadt Trial]

by Simon Round

David Irving comments:

JOHN ("Fawlty Towers") Cleese to play Deborah Lipstadt? That's a bit cruel.
   I had admittedly long wondered who would land this lead role, now that Rock Hudson is dead.

WE HEAR that the book written by academic Deborah Lipstadt, History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving, about her legal battle with the Holocaust-denying historian, has now been optioned by a film company.

Which prompts the question: who will play Irving in the movie? We reckon that Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jack Nicholson could be among the front-runners. Or how about John Cleese in the lead role?
