Crowe and Kidman to Unite in Aussie Film - Articles Surfing

After a failed attempt at collaborating on 'Eucalyptus,' Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman are looking to team with 'Moulin Rouge' director Baz Luhrmann. All three are Australian.

Crowe and Kidman have signed on to star in what is being called an epic Australian Outback film set in the years up to and including World War II. The film, codenamed 'Project Oklahoma,' will begin in the 1930s and stretch to the 1942 Japanese bombing of the tropical city of Darwin.

'We've talked a bout it for over seven years, that we must do something together in Australia.' Luhrmann said to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Kidman said that she was looking forward to making a 'uniquely Australian story' with Crowe, who she calls her 'good friend.'

Luhrmann compared the film to 'Gone with the Wind' and 'Lawrence of Arabia.' 'Collateral' screenwriter Stuart Beattie will work with Luhrmann on the script for the film.

Kidman has had a working history with Luhrmann, who directed the three minute, multimillion-dollar Chanel No. 5 commercial in which Kidman starred.

The rumored budget for the film is said to be about $40 million in Australian currency, which is equivalent to about $30 million in U.S. dollars. Filming is set to begin in August, and the film is projected to be released in 2007.
