Rickman and Grant go for vintage roles
- 27 July 2007
Both Alan Rickman and Hugh Grant could be playing the same character in rival films about a wine tasting event. Severus Snape actor Rickman has already signed on to play Steven Spurrier in the forthcoming Bottle Shock which re-enacts the controversial 1976 Paris wine tasting which ‘stunned’ the world by revealing French wine may not actually be the best in the world. But now Grant is believed to be rivaling Jude Law to take the Spurrier role in Judgement of Paris, which while holding the life-rights to Spurrier’s life doesn’t have as a good a title.
