Notes

  • Fox Searchlight Pictures commissioned Michelle Joyner to adapt Murray Bail's novel Eucalyptus for the film and to write the screenplay, with Jocelyn Moorhouse contributing to the script and directing the film. Production of the film, due to begin in February 2005, was postponed due to unresolved script problems.
