According to Crowe, who recently starred in the popular action flick, Man Of Steel, he sees promise in Justice System and is enthused to work alongside Pryce.
“I’m here to work with any talented young film producer and based on what I’ve seen so far, Andrew Lee Pryce is extra talented and will break big internationally with thisJustice System movie,” the New Zealand-born actor said.
Crowe, who has starred in movies such as American Gangster and Cinderella Man, won Best Actor for his lead role in The Gladiator in 2000 while also winning a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Nobel Peace Prize winner, John F.
