Let’s hope this Luhrmann epic costs less than $20 mil. a minute

Chanel_6Aussie Academy Award winners Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe are set to star in an epic movie set in their native land’s outback and directed by Moulin Rouge auteur Baz Luhrmann. It will be set in the 1930s and lead up to the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese, according to this BBC story. We can only hope that Kidman and Luhrmann will do better than their last epic effort, the $60 million, 3-minute long Chanel perfume "film" that Adweek named one of the worst ads of 2004.
