E! Online reports that producer Dino de Laurentiis and director Baz Luhrmann have decided to move the production of Alexander from Morocco to Australia following the recent suicide bombings in Casablanca. The epic film, scheduled to star Leonardo DiCaprio and Nicole Kidman, will tell the story of legendary bisexual conqueror Alexander the Great. Alexander is set to begin production in January, since Luhrmann decided not to try to race Oliver Stone's version of the same story, starring Colin Farrell, to the screen.
