With the opening of Man of Steel being so successful, Russell Crowe has confirmed much awaited plans to make his directorial debut.
He is currently in talks to direct and star in the film The Water Diviner.
The film is set in 1919 in the country of Turkey; it is about an Australian father who travels to Turkey in hopes to find his two sons, who go missing after the battle of Gallipoli.
The battle of Gallipoli was the allied attempt that failed to take down the Ottoman capital.
For years, Crowe has considered many different films for his directing debut; all have been Australian stories, which is the perfect for the Aussie. Those include, The Long Green Shore and Bra Boys.
Crowe has been in several successful films this year like Les Miserables and Man of Steel.
The Academy Award winner is also set to star in two more films: Akiva Goldsman’s Winter’s Tale and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah.
It will be exciting to see Crowe’s work behind and in front of the camera. Do you think he will be able to pull it off?
