IT was lovely to hear from Russell Crowe via email last week, with the actor revealing he won't be back home in Australia until February. Crowe is still filming American Gangster in New York, opposite Denzel Washington, and beyond that his schedule is full of everything from family visits to making another film in New Mexico.
"I'm shooting throughout this month and then some obligations in Europe, taking the boys [sons Charlie and Tennyson] to visit their great grandparents [in England], promoting A Good Year, then I'm also attending the dedication of a statue to Richard Harris in Ireland," Crowe wrote. (The actor wrote a song for Harris, simply titled Mr Harris, for his album My Hand, My Heart. )
Crowe said he would then travel back to the US to make another film 3.10 To Yuma, a remake of the classic 1957 suspense western.
"I go to New Mexico to start work with James Mangold on 3.10 To Yuma in the middle of October," Crowe wrote. Mangold was the director of Walk The Line and the script for the remake has been written by Australian writer Stuart Beattie (Collateral), who has close professional links to Crowe.
Danielle Spencer was still in Sydney last week, with toddler Charlie and baby Tennyson, but the entire family is expected to spend the second half of the year in the northern hemisphere.
