Updates On Both “Alexander” Films

The Guardian has just done a massive article on the various “Alexander” flicks with some new current status information.

The love life in Baz Luhrmann/Leo DiCaprio’s version will run along the following lines: “After taking three male lovers, and diverting himself with the odd eunuch, he will be shown putting politics before pleasure to do his duty with the single-breasted queen of the Amazons”.

Oliver Stone/Colin Farrell’s version hopes to begin shooting in June in Morocco after abandoning plans for locations in India, which puts it in conflict as Luhrmann’s version will shoot in and around the same areas only a few months later.

Meanwhile The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Nicole Kidman has confirmed through her publicist that she will play Alexander’s mother ‘Olympia’ in the Luhrmann version.
