Russell Crowe in Istanbul for a Movie about Anzacs

  • Published by Vedat
World-famous American actor Russell Crowe visited Turkey for his upcoming film project which is about Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

russell crowe-ministerCrowe met Turkish Culture and Tourism Minister Ömer Çelik at Topkapı Palace in Istanbul following visiting some historical sites in Turkey like Cappadocia, Fethiye and Edirne along with some villages.

Speaking at a press conference, Russell Crowe said this is his third time in Turkey and every time he came he was more fascinated by the culture. Crowe also noted that he would ask help from Minister Çelik about Turkish actors.

Russell Crowe is to make his directing debut on the post-first world war drama The Water Diviner, which focuses on a father from New Zealand-born Crowe's adopted homeland who travels to Turkey in 1919. There, he hopes to discover what has happened to his two sons, both of whom have gone missing following the battle for Gallipoli. The failed 1915-16 allied campaign, which incorporated troops from Australia and New Zealand, aimed to knock Turkey out of the war.
