"Alexander", You're Great!

A year or so back, the Aussie crews were in turmoil wondering if there would be any more work. It came hot on the heels of news that the “Pitch Black” sequel wasn’t being shot down under [like the first film was], that “Scooby Doo 2” didn’t want to even hear the word “Queensland” and that Darren Aronosfky’s “The Fountain” had fallen apart at the seams leaving film crews unwaged indefinitely. But there’s a shimmering luminosity on the horizon it seems..

According to Variety, Bazz Luhrmann has decided to make “Alexander the Great” in Australia after all, after deciding Casablanca – especially after the wave of suicide attacks that killed 41 civilians last week – was too dangerous.

Producer Dino DeLaurentiis had even built a studio to house the film in Ouarzazate, less than 300 miles from Casablanca, but feels the political conditions are too precarious. "Unless the situation changes in five or six months," De Laurentiis said, "any important American actor could be a target. That is a risk I cannot take."

Luhrmann is set to shoot digital footage for the film in November, and ship star Leonardo Di Caprio to oz in January to start shooting.
