Kurylenko in drama
BOND girl Olga Kurylenko is set to star opposite Russell Crowe in the actor’s directorial debut, The Water Diviner. The feature drama, about the journey of an Australian father searching to recover the bodies of his sons in Turkey after the battle of Gallipoli, will be Crowe’s first turn in the director’s chair. It will be filmed in both Turkey and Australia and is being executive produced by billionaire James Packer and Hollywood director Brett Ratner under their RatPac Entertainment venture. Crowe and Kurylenko have been enjoying the Turkish sun in the last few weeks, where the Gladiator star has been scouting locations. Kurylenko will reportedly play Crowe’s love interest in the flick, a Turkish woman who owns the hotel Crowe stays in.
