Crowe, Kidman attempt to grow ‘Eucalyptus’

Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman, who failed earlier this year in an attempt to make all-Australian pic “Eucalyptus,” are poised to try again with a period epic that Baz Luhrmann might direct. Formal offers haven’t been made, but both thesps are being wooed heavily by the filmmaker, who is collaborating with “Collateral” scribe and fellow Aussie Stuart Beattie on a romance being called an Oz “Gone With the Wind.” Luhrmann and Kidman had a memorable collaboration in “Moulin Rouge,” but this pic would be the first together for the director and Crowe.
