Russell Crowe has officially left the set of Baz Luhrmann's drama last week after disagreements with 20th Century Fox.

A report in the New York Post said Heath Ledger had replaced Crowe; Nicole Kidman and Luhrmann are still attached to the project. Variety reports the studio is still going forward with the film event though it's unlikely Crowe will return.

A 2008 release is still scheduled for the Baz Luhrmann Untitled Project.
