Russell Crowe Replaces Heath Ledger in "Dirt Music"

Russell Crowe Replaces Heath Ledger in "Dirt Music"Submit Comment
Russell Crowe has signed on to star in the film adaptation of Tim Winton's novel "Dirt Music," to be directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, Patriot Games). This will be Crowe's first Australian feature in more than a decade.

"Dirt Music" takes place in a small fishing village on the coast of Australia and focuses on a woman who is stranded in a relationship with a man she doesn't love. An encounter with a local pariah results in an affair that dredges up secrets and changes all of their lives.

Crow will play WA fisherman Luther Fox, replacing Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight), who passed away in January of 2008.

"We were all set to go with Heath and Rachel Weisz," Noyce explained. "We had the money at that point. And then Heath decided to play the Joker which you couldn't argue with. And then it just took a while to find someone else to play Luther."

Any chance for a cameo for Paul Hogan with his man tits and Linda Kozlowski and her 1,008 extra pounds ?

Looks like they've been throwin' more than 1 billion jumbo shrimp on their barbie ...

Nice Max.

But even those (nicer) pics of her revealed an ass headed for tonnage.

Still... wouldn't have thrown her out of bed ('til I was done).

Well, he would kind of have to replace Mr. Ledger, on account of that slight case of death. Just sayin'.
