    Default Heath Ledger rejects to replace Russell Crowe in new film

    Ledger Rejects Crowe Role

    By WENN| Thursday, June 01, 2006

    HOLLYWOOD - Heath Ledger has turned down the chance to replace Russell Crowe in Baz Luhrmann's new $150 million untitled film epic.

    later this year in the movie set around the Japanese bombing of Darwin, Australia, in 1942.

    But Crowe has been accused of demanding script approval before signing on for the film. While Crowe was procrastinating, the film's producers reportedly told Luhrmann to find another actor. The director then met with Ledger several times.

    A source tells the New York Post, "Baz liked him and offered him the movie. Then Crowe came back to Luhrmann and said he'd forgo the script approval and wanted to do the film, but they told him it was too late--to buzz off."

    But the Moulin Rouge! director is now stranded without a leading man after Brokeback Mountain actor Ledger passed on his project in favor of another big budget movie, according to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph.
