Murray Walker is Bruce Willis !!

Die Hard star Bruce Willis is tipped to play Formula One commentator Murray Walker on the big screen.

According to newspaper reports, the Hollywood actor will play Murray in a forthcoming film about the life of Formula One champion Michael Schumacher.

In the film, the character is expected to narrate the tale as well as feature alongside Schumacher.

Willi Weber, a former Formula One champion and Schumacher's agent said: "Bruce Willis would certainly do Murray justice."

Weber added: "A Hollywood producer is interested. It would be called The Michael Schumacher Story, with him as the main actor."

Walker was the voice of the BBC's Formula One coverage for almost half a century until he switched when ITV won the rights.

Walker admitted to being a bit "shell-shocked" when he found out that Bruce Willis was going to play him in the film.

He said: "I had to make sure when looking at the calendar that it was April 25 not April 1."

He said jokingly: "I always regarded Bruce Willis as a mirror image of myself, don't you know...a much younger version though."

The Sequel...

Did you hear about the sequel in which Murray (Bruce Willis) innocently gets caught up in a plot by arch villain Ron Dennis (Alan Rickman aka Mr BAD ) to blackmail top F1 official Max Mosely (Joss Ackland) about his dubious past/Nazi connections and coerce him into revealing the secrets of the top F1 team (played by Ferrari). Gerard Depardieu plays Jean Todt and Dudley Moore stars as Bernie Ecclestone.

Apparently it is going to be called 'Drive Hard II - Drive Harder!'

AND for gaming fans they are going to release a version called 'Hard Drive - 7200 RPM'
