From Cindy: Elvis Mitchell interviewed Phillip Noyce last Wed for his radio program and the last several minutes are spent discussing Dirt Music. That discussion starts at approximately 23 minutes. It's available here at KCRW and is also available at iTunes podcasts. Scroll down a bit. Some interesting bits and pieces about the movie, Russell and the music, and filming in Western Australia. Noyce really cracks up Mitchell with one comment about how easy to portray emotional paralysis living in the Outback. Unfortunately he mentions they don't have a dime yet, they have an actor and director and a nearly finished script, but not a dime. Very interesting listen, though, and if you like Noyce, you'll enjoy the rest of the interview.
Herald Sun: My son made me quit smoking: "I don't want to get on a plane again this year. I want again to take a step back and put a normal rhythm back into the kids' lives." On work he added: "I know what it is that turns me on in my job and I know if ... something comes up that I want to do then I'm usually allowed to do it. I do the things that drive me from a pure place."
the Australian: (Scroll) - Cryptic Crowe - "...Also, he was in a suit, which disappointed those who'd spotted him beforehand in a tracksuit and had clung to the hope he might bung a centurion's breastplate over the top. Crowe didn't muck about, launching proceedings with, "Any questions?" For the record, Crowe observed, "Obviously we've got this huge gladiatorial contest going on at the moment. Perhaps there's a role open for a pirate queen. I'm not sure if they've cast Pontius Pilate yet and whether that may change the course of history if a certain person gets that particular role. Anyway, we'll see how we go." We'll pop that into our election allusion basket." - Thanks, Maria

Hollywood News - Pete Hammond: "...I caught Noyce chatting with the town’s newest certified mogul, Ryan Kavanaugh whose Relativity Media was one of “Salt’s” key backers and who swooped in this week to save Overture Films from meeting the fate of most other indie companies by taking over marketing and distribution of their upcoming slate of films. Clearly hoping to gain some interest , Noyce was enthusiastically talking up what he hoped will be his next project, “Dirt Music” in which Russell Crowe will play a country singer (look what you started Jeff Bridges!). Turns out Kavanaugh was already familiar with it. The producer who also was involved with Crowe’s summer film, “Robin Hood” told Noyce that Russell actually cornered him in a car and sang most of the tunes for him already. Despite the sell job Relativity hasn’t yet jumped into the “Dirt Music” business. Stay tuned." - Thanks, Maria

The SMH Travel: The Peak District's natural landscape has star qualities, too; its dales, forests, limestone valleys and coastline appears in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood (ironically as a substitute for Kent, which is now too densely populated to provide authentic locations). One hundred and forty horses clad in chain mail galloped across the fields around Dovedale for the final battle scenes, to the amazement of local children; Russell Crowe was happy to shout beers and sign autographs at the Green Man pub in nearby Ashbourne. - Thanks, Steph

I had this whimsical idea for a shotgun wedding song. These foolish ideas occur to me all the time, but I'm not capable of the poetry he's capable of. He's like a lot of my actor friends who are very gifted with the spoken and written word. It's fun to work with a guy like that. - Thanks, Gayle-Lynne, Cindy

Comingsoon.net: Philip Noyce - CS: I think the last time I spoke to you, you had already been developing "Dirt Music," so did this come up while you were working on it, and you figured it would be easier to make this than that movie?
Noyce: At one stage, Heath Ledger was going to play the lead in "Dirt Music." Obviously, that's no longer possible. Now Russell Crowe is going to play the lead, and he's older than the character in the novel and in the existing screenplays, so we're in the process of reimagining the story to be played by Russell. It's just been a natural evolution, which was necessary once Heath was no longer able to play the lead.
CS: Is that other project you mentioned earlier something you might get going on first? -- Noyce: You're dependent on two things, script and actors, and occasionally they align, so it all depends on what happens. Russell and I are going to try to make the film next year. - Thanks, Maria
More on Dirt Music: Thaiindian news: Australian director Phillip Noyce says he is indeed going to wield the megaphone for spy thriller “Wenceslas Square” apart from a long-awaited musical “Dirt Music” starring Russell Crowe. “I am working on a project called ‘Wenceslas Square’ which is set in Prague. I am also working on a musical in Australia with Russell Crowe. It’s got a lot of music in it, but it’s nothing like a Bollywood film. It’s called ‘Dirt Music’ and Russell will play a country singer and songwriter in it,” Noyce told IANS over telephone from Washington. - Thanks, Maria

Blog - Quickfix.com: Interview: John Collee, screenwriter of Creation, Happy Feet and Master and Commander -- "...SM: I’ll finish up by asking: what are you working on now, or conversely, what would you like to finally see out of your other projects?
JC: Well, you know Dirt Music which I was writing for Phil Noyce, I recently delivered that, and you know, Russell Crowe was ostensibly attached to that, so we’ll see. I had great fun with Russell, so he’s keen to do the music for it. That was an interesting time, spending a bit of time with Russell, hanging out listening to his band.
SM: Can you tell us about that?
JC: There’s not much to tell really. You know he’s obviously a great actor and I kind of wanted to rewrite the character, and he was offered the part – this is a love triangle you know – of this rough tough fisherman, that seemed like the obvious part, but he was more attracted to the sensitive musician type, and it was my job to rewrite a rather good existing screenplay with that different character. I don’t know where that’s at now. So Guardians of Ga’Hoole [Legend of the Guardians] is definitely coming out at the end of this year, but it won’t have my name on it.

USA Today: Box office seeing a few bright spots in sluggish summer - Robin Hood. It's easy to forget about this Ridley Scott-Russell Crowe project that was to continue Iron Man 2's kickoff to summer. Instead it opened in second place and seemed to disappear. But the 21/2-hour drama earned $103.3 million domestically and, more impressively, nearly $200 million overseas, thanks to a canny release pattern. "We knew the story was going to work overseas, and Ridley and Russell are huge global stars," says Nikki Rocco, president of distribution for Universal Pictures, which released Robin Hood. "But we knew we had to get the film out there early, because soon the world was going to be watching soccer." - Thanks, Judy
