Russell Crowe Confirms 'Noah' Buzz, Shoots Down 'Robocop' Rumors

Last week, it was revealed that Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson were circling Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic, Noah, as the titular character and a villain, respectively. Then Variety's Jeff Sneider tweeted that Crowe was up for and may be starring in Jose Padilha's upcoming Robocop reboot.
 
Crowe has since taken to his own Twitter account to set the record straight, albeit in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way.
 
First, Crowe responded to a MovieWeb tweet stating that Aronofsky was eyeing Crowe for the Noah movie to which Crowe replied, "And I'm eyeing him right back… Liam's eyeing both of us… and Paramount are eyeing us all, including you. Whole lot of eyeing."
 
The following day, Crowe responded to a tweet asking if he was up for Robocop, to which Crowe replied, "No."
 
So that pretty much sets things straight as far as where Crowe stands on things, but it leaves the door open for continued speculation as to who will play Officer Alex Murphy.
