CROCODILE DUNDEE star Paul Hogan's new movie STRANGE BEDFELLOWS has become the latest casualty of the world's actors strikes.

After filming of an untitled Jack Nicholson movie came to a halt in Paris, France, due to a strike there, Hogan's new film has been forced to postpone rehearsals in the actor's native Sydney, Australia, after activists shut down the set for the day (17JUL03).

Aussie actors are striking in a bid to get better deals from repeats and residuals on TV.

Other projects also forced to shut down for the day include hit soaps HOME AND AWAY and NEIGHBOURS.
