Russell Crowe to make directorial debut on Australian film

Thursday, June 20, 2013 10:25 AM | Anonymous

AiF Ambassador Russell Crowe is about to make his directorial debut on "The Water Diviner" - a post-WWI Australian drama set in 1919.

The Water Diviner tells the story of a father who travels to Turkey in search of his two sons who did not return from the Battle of Gallipoli. 

Though the Oscar winner has directed several short films, this will be his first feature length film behind the camera. It will be a busy time for Crowe, who is also set to star. 

With a script penned by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios, Crowe plans to shoot the film in Australia and Turkey and production is expected to begin later this year. 

"The Water Diviner" will be produced by Hopscotch and Fear of God Films. 

Crowe can currently be seen in theatres playing Jor-El in Man of Steel. Tickets:
