Film Adaptation: Eucalyptus by Murray Bail Part 2

"The Australian" today reports further on the suspension of production on the film adaptation of the Murray Bail novel Eucalyptus. Obviously matters have progressed somewhat since my previous note regarding the fracas. Now we find that writer-director Moorhouse has left the project, and that Nicole Kidman's schedule will not permit her to be involved in the film later in the year. So she's out as well. Crowe is now reported to be attempting to contact either Bruce Beresford or Fred Schepisi. Though neither has been approached so far according to their agents.

To bring this back to the script side of things: it appears that the disagreement between Moorhouse and Crowe concerned the dialogue. Crowe wanted changes, Moorhouse did not. And we thought this only happened in Hollywood. No, hang on. This is a Hollywood film. It's just being filmed here.
