Heath Ledger Won't Play "Dirt Music"



Heath Ledger has given up his role in "Dirt Music" for "The Dark Knight."

Forced to make choice between starring in "The Dark Knight" and "Dirt Music", Heath Ledger ultimately made a decision to walk out the latter project, director Phillip Noyce has confirmed to Moviehole.

With Ledger's departure, the film therefore only has Rachel Weisz in the supposedly high profile cast lineup. So far, there is no word yet on who may fill in the seat left by the Australian actor.

Set in the dramatic landscape of Western Australia, "Music" is an adaptation of Tim Winton's novel of the same title which was a Booker prize shortlisted novel from 2001 and the winner of the 2002 Miles Franklin Award. Pip Karmel has been appointed to do the most recent draft with Noyce also seating as producer alongside his Rumbalara Films partner Miranda Culley.
