Heath Ledger and Rachel Weisz will star in the romantic film, Dirt Music.

The movie is an adaptation of the Tim Winton novel about a couple in a loveless relationship and is set in a remote fishing village on the West Australian coast. Director Phillip Noyce optioned the flick after winning accolades for another homegrown Australian tale, Rabbit Proof Fence; Noyce is also producing.

Variety says production for Dirt Music does not have a set production date due to the schedules of the two actors and director.
