The Water Diviner Photo

Did you know that Russell Crowe (star of Noah) is currently directing his first film? Shooting is already underway, and Crowe is starring and directing the film about an Australian man who travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. It's titled The Water Diviner and the first official still arrived recently. They're currently shooting in Australia before going to Turkey, and this looks like an early moment with one of his sons. The supporting cast includes Turkish actors Yilmaz Erdogan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) and Cem Yilmaz (Hokkabaz), Oz actors Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Michael Dorman, plus Dylan Georgiades. It's a very nice first look, caught my attention.

Here's the first official still from Russell Crowe's new film The Water Diviner, originally via Variety:

The Water Diviner First Look

The Water Diviner, being directed by Russell Crowe from a screenplay by Australian television writing duo Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios, is a period drama that follows an Australian patriarch (Crowe) who journeys to Turkey in order to find his two sons who went missing during the Battle of Gallipoli in 1919. Crowe is starring in the film with Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion), Jai Courtney and Damon Herriman. The film will be shooting in Turkey for a few weeks. "Crowe had been looking for a script to direct, and immediately fell in love with this one." The film's production was profiled by the Sydney Morning Herald. With shooting just underway, no official release date is set beyond 2014, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.
