Film Adaptation of Tim Winton's Dirt Music

We've mentioned the possible film adaptation of Tim Winton's Dirt Music here a few times in the past. The production will be directed by Phillip Noyce and feature Rachel Weisz. Now it appears that the filming has been put back to 2009. Noyce, who is currently in Canada, said that "it's a story that needs the right performers." Which, really, might mean anything. Remember that Heath Ledger was originally lined up for a major role before dropping out to play The Joker in the upcoming Batman film.
