Russell Crowe

has taken to his Twitter.com page to deny he's set to star in a remake of Michael Crichton's sci-fi thriller "". The "Gladiator" actor was rumored to have signed up to a new version of the 1973 film, which was author Crichton's first outing as a big screen director and starred Yul Brynner as a gunslinging android at a fantasy theme park.

But Crowe has shot down the reports, insisting there is no truth to the rumors. He writes on his Twitter.com page, "WestWorld purely a rumor, I've never been contacted about it."

And he also sets the record straight about claims he's taking over from late fellow antipodean in "", an adaptation of Tim Winton's award-winning book - insisting the project is a long way from completion. He adds, "Dirt Music is still off in the never, never somewhere."
