Olga Kurylenko Finds The Water Diviner

Olga Kurylenko

With shooting set to start in just under a couple of months, Russell Crowe continues on the hunt for cast to round out his new drama The Water Diviner. He’s locked down the female lead in the shape of Oblivion’s Olga Kurylenko.

Crowe’s directorial debut – in which he’s also planning to act – is described as an epic adventure set in the dying days of World War I as an Australian father arrives in Turkey to discover what happened to his three sons, all of whom were feared lost in the battle of Gallipoli.

The Hollywood Reporter’s story doesn’t mention Kurylenko's exact part, but the producers seem to think she’ll be valuable. "We anticipate great interest from our buyers in Russell Crowe's directorial debut,” production company boss David Garrett tells the trade magazine. “It is a compelling, emotional story, set across a sweeping landscape, and the strong script together with the casting of international star Olga Kurylenko opposite Russell gives this film huge worldwide appeal."

Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios wrote the script, and Crowe will begin barking orders in early December. Kurylenko will next be seen in Empires Of The Deep, Vampire Academy and November Man.
