Oliver's Lester To Battle Craig At The Box Office?

DANIEL CRAIG faces a battle royal at the box office, if he signs on to play WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR in a new film - OLIVER star MARK LESTER will play KING HAROLD in a rival movie.
The former child star will don the crown for a new movie, called 1066, which will also feature Alien Vs Predator star Ian Whyte. The $75 million (GBP50 million) movie will be shot in Wales next year (09).
The project, written by Robin Jacob and historical novelist Helen Hollick, is the culmination of over four years of historical research and script development.
Industry stunt legend Rocky Taylor, who has featured in 17 Bond movies, will take charge of the film's stunt scenes.
Craig is said to be in negotiations to play Harold's rival William in a rival epic, which will trace his life prior to his victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
