The Hollywood Reporter described the project as a romance along the lines of "Gone With the Wind," but said details are being kept under wraps. The project seems to be part of a trio of epic films Luhrmann has talked about making -- including a film about the life of Alexander the Great and a Russian epic.
Luhrmann has called his three movie musicals -- "Strictly Ballroom" (1992), "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" (1996) and "Moulin Rouge" (2001) his Red Curtain trilogy.
