Mickey Rourke Up For Tony Scott’s ‘Hells Angels’

Thursday, May 6 by

Hells Angels founding member Sonny Barger OR Mickey Rourke circa 1994?

In addition to Potsdamer Platz, Mickey Rourke is circling another Tony Scott project, and he’s circling this one menacingly on a motorcycle while yelling hate speech. Typical Mickey.

Rourke is up for the role of the outlaw Sonny Barger in Hells Angels, a script that Scott has been developing for ten years. Now, Scott Frank has been brought in to rework the script that tells the story of a young cop who infiltrates the nefarious gang. This is spot-on casting. I can’t think of a single actor more appropriate than Mickey Rourke for the grizzled Hells Angels founder. You could have a motorcycle growing out of your ass, and Mickey Rourke would still be more appropriate for the role. (Deadline)
