But why all the interest? This year marks the 140th anniversary in October of the police murders in 1878, two years before the final shootout at Glenrowan. The Stringybark reserve, which has picnic tables and walking tracks (and abandoned mine shafts) and attracts about 20,000 visitors annually, is getting a makeover. The intention is that it should better reflect the stories of the fallen Victorian policemen, who many say are overshadowed by the Kelly legend.

New big budget film telling bushranger Ned Kelly 's story to feature Russell Crowe , but will filming occur in the North East? From one legend to another: Russell Crowe as Robin Hood in 2010.

Russell Crowe will lead an all-star cast in an upcoming movie about bushranger Ned Kelly to be filmed in Australia next year. Warning about ‘gluten-free’ claims . Takata airbag recall adds 1.1 million cars.

He said: "It will undoubtedly be a far better film adaption of what actually happened at Stringybark Creek than the imaginative musings of a prize-winning novelist who wants us to see Ned Kelly as a Robin Hood figure.

"Can there be any doubt, that when finished the Hollywood cum Australian film will favour Ned's slanted version of the Stringybark Creek tragedy, emphasising, as always, evil policemen and a non-existent 'fair fight'.

  The Voice Australia: Joe Jonas on Delta Goodrem's tactics The gloves are well and truly off on The Voice. As the competition heats up, Joe Jonas claims fellow coach Delta Goodrem has been using dirty tactics in order to win the competition. "Delta's such a sweet person and an incredible artist," Joe tells TV WEEK. "So it makes sense that the public would be rooting for her."But Joe admits it can be frustrating when Delta uses her popularity as ammunition."I came in knowing this," he concedes.

"Ben wants to tell an accurate story of three respected police officers shot down while doing their duty. Clearly his fledgling undertaking, when compared to the Peter Carey inspired slick Hollywood film extravaganza, is to be a David versus Goliath enterprise.

Ben Head, writer and director, has on hand a horse wrangler, makeup, wardrobe and a historic town in Gippsland for the location shots. He also needs to raise a further $9,000 through crowd sourcing to reach his budget and has produced a short trailer to show the quality of the production.

"The most challenging thing will be to make everything look authentic like the saddlery and the firearms.

"As a kid I often wondered why we idolise a criminal. Some attitudes to police are coloured by Ned's story.

"This is a story that needs to be told for police members, police families and is one that no-one in the mainstream has wanted to tell."

"The aim is to produce a 30-minute 'proof of concept' film which can then be shown to funding bodies such as Screen Australia  and Film Victoria to demonstrate that it is worth making into a full length movie."
