Am I just being really stupid and believing what i read in the papers or is there another Alexander being made, or trying to be made? I heard Baz Luhrman was making one and it was gonna have Leo DiCaprio in it?

Its great all these Graeco-Roman films are being made...but i can't keep track!!! Rolling Eyes

Sam Laughing Razz Laughing

ps. What do people think of a Luhrman-Alexander? As long as he doesn't make them sing all the way through i think it'd be quite good! Very Happy

Actually Sammy, that film has been shelved indefinitely due to the enormous amount of money needed. Luhrman wanted to do a 3 and a half hour film covering all of Alexander's life and conquests, from his taming of Bukefalus, to his death.
Hopefully it will be picked up in the future, without Leonardo DiCaprio this time!

If it is ever picked up again though, we won't be seeing it for a good 6-10 years at least.

Cheers Tino Very Happy bit of a shame luhrman couldnt hav a crack at it

I dont think DiCaprio would make a good alexander anyway, would pull in the crowds but he's just too girly!!! Farrell is much better, has a lot more grrrrrr about him, yum! Wink

Just a question for everyone to think about...who would you cast has your ideal Alexander???

i think matt damon would be pretty good at it, but again maybe a bit too polished by Hollywood? reckon it'd hav 2 b someone up-and-coming, like russell crowe was when he was cast as maximus in gladiator...wat d'ya think?

answers on a postcard Laughing Razz Laughing

there is a third alexander movie in the works. Sam Heughan will play Alexander in "Macedonia's Alexander the Great," to be directed by Jalal Merhi. that might be released just before the stone version is released.

just like the stone version and baz luhrmann version of alexander the great, this, too, will portray him as a greek macedonian. the film will focus on his childhood. here' the site:
