Ewan McGregor cast in 'Ocean Warrior'?

Ewan McGregor has reportedly been cast as Captain Paul Wilson, Greenpeace activist and founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The real-life Wilson revealed that Ewan will likely be the star of Ocean Warrior which begins shooting later this year in Australia:

The making of this movie has been a project in Hollywood since 1981 when Tony Bill first bought the rights from me for Warner Brothers. The option rights have been purchased every year but now finally it looks promising, with a written script and serious pre-production work. Over the years a number of actors have requested to play my part including Sean Penn, Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aiden Quinn, Rutger Hauer, Clive Owens etc. As of now it looks like Ewan McGregor. I think he will do a good job, although I would love to see long time Sea Shepherd supporter Christian Bale take the part. As for a leading lady my favourite actress has always been Sophie Marceau, but the choice is not mine unfortunately. [Bleeding Cool]
