Robbins tipped for political thriller
A part of the liberal Hollywood activist crowd, Robbins is being considered an ideal candidate for the film Hot Stuff.
Shawn Slovo has written the script for the film, the man who also penned Captain Corelli's Mandolin, which starred Nicholas Cage, Penelope Cruz and new Batman actor Christian Bale.
Phillip Noyce is to direct the film, and he is no stranger to dealing with politics in his movies.
He directed two adaptations of Tom Clancy novels, Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger, both of which featured Harrison Ford.
Noyce has also demonstrated his ability to chill, as well as thrill, with movies such as Nicole Kidman's Dead Calm and The Bone Collector, with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.
Tim Robbins will next hit cinema screens when he appears in the forthcoming film War Of The Worlds.
