Mark Ruffalo to Star in Film Adaptation of Larry Kramer’s ‘The Normal Heart’

Mark Ruffalo tells MTV News that he’s going to star in Larry Kramer’s adaptation of his semi-autobiographical play The Normal Heart.

Says Ruffalo:

“It’s basically a story of when the AIDS outbreak happened in New York. It wasn’t really taken seriously, I think specifically because it was ‘the gay cancer,’ they called it. I think it’s a really interesting time in America. I think to see someone who really does change the world by his commitment and he’s even totally by himself at times, there’s still a real power in that. I love that it’s a people-powered movement that actually changed the way our government looked at this epidemic. I think there’s a real powerful message to that and something that we forget. We can get really cynical about what we can do, it gets stacked against us and they’re all corrupt — and at the end of the day, everything starts with people. The reason they’re there is because of us…It’s a juicy part. It’s just a great role, man. He’s a fighter, you know?”
