Is it possible that Matt O'Connor might have had a hidden incentive for some time now?
Anyway. Here is the full article from the Evening Standard. I have boldened some of the text.
Holy smoke! The Fathers 4 Justice film
By John Higginson, Metro
20 January 2006
Hollywood is to tell the story of the caped crusaders - not Batman and Robin this time, but Fathers 4 Justice.
After two years of fighting between film companies, Disney-owned Miramax has bought the rights to turn the campaign group's story into a blockbuster.
It will be a Full Monty-style tragi-comic take on the story of Matt O'Connor, 38, who founded the group to campaign for the rights of divorced fathers.
Produced by Harbour Pictures, the team behind Calendar Girls, it will follow Mr O'Connor's battle for the custody of his children after splitting from his ex-partner.
Along the way, it will take in high-profile stunts, such as the flour bombing of Tony Blair in the House of Commons and the scaling of such landmarks as Buckingham Palace in superhero costumes.
The movie will also tell how Fathers 4 Justice was hijacked by an extremist element, infiltrated by undercover police SO19 specialist firearms branch and exposed by a journalist masquerading as a group member.
Matt O'Conner founded the group.
The story ends with the group's demise - Fathers 4 Justice split this week after news of an alleged plot by a splinter group to kidnap Mr Blair's youngest son Leo.
Mr O'Connor, who is now looking after his four-week-old baby, said: 'I want people to be able to see what has been going on behind the tabloid headlines with police chasing us and how hard it has been to hold it all together some times.
'There will be tragedy but it is going to be very funny.'
A cast has yet to be chosen but Mr O'Connor joked that his role would be best played by 'Shrek or Johnny Vegas'.
The father-of-three is now working on his autobiography.[/b]
