WWII film and Aussies

LONDON: Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman are set to star in an epic movie set in their native Australia during the Second World War.

According to ananova.com, Aussie director Buzz Luhrmann will direct the movie. The movie centres round an English aristocrat who inherits a ranch. When cattle barons threaten to take away her ranch, she joins a cattle driver play-ed by Jackman to drive 2,000 cattle across hundreds of miles. But they arrive in Darwin only to face the bombing by Jap-anese forces that atta-cked Pearl Harbour a few months earlier. Luhrm-ann said, “What people tend not to know is more tonnage of bombs were dropped by the same attack force on Darwin as Pearl Harbour.”
