Peter Weir, without doubt one of my favourite directors, is finally making a new film, according to Cinescape. He'll direct Russell Crowe in the film 'Master and Commander.'
I know absolutely nothing about the books the film will be based on - but I do know that Weir picks his projects carefully, so it'll definitely be worth watching. I just love the way Weir's films always have something to say about society and the way we live - even if it's through a light-hearted comedy such as 'Green Card.' And 'Gallipoli' remains my all-time favourite Australian film - the final shot is without doubt one of the most powerful images in film history.

Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news items on January 18, 2000:
- Ron Moore Speaks Out
The first segment of the infamous Ronald D. Moore interview was released, in which the writer-producer talked about his departure from Voyager. "I regret going to the show," Moore said. "I think that was my mistake. I should have known better. I should have been smart enough to know."
- Rob Doherty Interview
Voyager staff writer Rob Doherty gave an interview to the official Star Trek Magazine in which he talked about his typical day as a Trek staffer. "It really depends on the schedules of the bigger guys, the producers like Brannon and Ken and Joe [Menosky]," Doherty said. "When I'm writing, I can have days when I'm here by 6.30 and I don't leave until 10 or 11 at night; then I can have days when I'm not writing, but we're always busy if we're breaking a story we could be in the same room together all day; It just really depends on what's going on."
- Major Upcoming Voyager Spoilers
Information on seven forthcoming Voyager episodes made its way onto the Internet. Included in this was the news of the Borg children coming onboard the ship in 'Collective,' and that one of them, Icheb, was engineered to be a 'Borg Killer.'
