Top movie stuff.

Top broadcast journalist Robert Peston has ambitious career plans for when the current world-wide financial crisis ends.

The BBC's business editor is planning to take Hollywood by storm and star in a series of adventure blockbusters portraying the glamorous and hectic lifestyle of international business journalists.

Peston has become a familiar face on BBC news bulletins ever since the credit crunch and the banking collapses of a couple of years ago, and hardly a radio news programme goes by without his knowledgable voice explaining the latest business woes to listeners.

But the financial downturn won't last forever and he has told his agent to 'put the feelers out' in Hollywood.

"Bob's got a few story ideas we're pitching to producers over there," said a spokesman for Peston's agent.

"We've put together an impressive showreel of Bob's appearances on the TV - he's quite clearly telegenic and has a natural ability which will translate to the big screen. And have you seen his facial and arm gestures? The boy's a natural.

"Without giving too much away, Bob sees himself in an Indian Jones-type role, chasing around the world seeking out business and financial stories and bringing them to the public.

"It's very exciting."
