Olga Kurylenko Joins Russell Crowe’s Directorial Debut

Congratulations to Olga on yet another exciting role!

THE WRAP – “Oblivion” star will appear in “The Water Diviner”

Olga Kurylenko, who turned heads in “Oblivion” and “Quantum of Solace,” will star in Russell Crowe’s directorial debut “The Water Diviner.”

Crowe co-stars in the World War I epic, that follows an Australian father who travels to Turkey to find his three sons who went missing in action during the battle of Gallipoli. Kurylenko plays the owner of the hotel where Crowe’s character stays.

Principal photography begins this December in Australia.

The “Saving Mr Banks” team of Andrew Mason and Troy Lum will produce the film for Hopscotch Features, and Keith Rodger (“Robin Hood”) will produce on behalf of Crowe’s own shingle Fear of God Films. Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastassios wrote the screenplay.

Kurylenko recently finished filming “Vampire Academy” and the spy thriller “November Man” opposite Pierce Brosnan. Her next project is “Momentum” opposite Vincent Cassel and Shea Whigham.

Crowe, who recently appeared in “Man of Steel,” will next be featured in Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” and Akiva Goldsman’s “Winter’s Tale.”

Crowe is represented by WME and Kurylenko is represented by Tavistock Wood and CAA.

Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Vincent Cassel Join ‘Momentum’

VARIETY – Olga Kurylenko and Vincent Cassel are set to square off in Stephen Campanelli’s action thriller “Momentum.”

Morgan Freeman and Shea Whigham co-star.

Colette Aguilar, sales president at Moonrise Pictures, “Momentum’s” sales agent, made the key cast announcement at the Toronto Festival.

Campanelli has been best known as Clint Eastwood’s camera operator since “The Bridges of Madison County.”

Anton Ernst, the producer of South Africa’s Oscar submission in 2012, “Little One,” will produce via his banners Thaba Media and Azari Media.

From a screenplay by helmer-scribe Adam Marcus (“Let It Snow”) and writing partner Debra Sullivan, “Momentum” has Kurylenko as a thief on the run from not only the law but also Cassel’s assassin gang.

Moonrise has launched pre-sales, licensing Andre Boissier’s Revolutionary Releasing rights to CIS, Eastern Europe and Turkey, key territories now for any actioner. Gulf Film has closed the Middle East. Grosvenor Park is co-financing “Momentum,” Ernst said.

Goodbye to ‘Magic City’: Starz Cancels Mitch Glazer’s Miami Drama After Two Seasons

INDIEWIRE – Starz renewed Miami period drama “Magic City” for a second season before the first even began airing last year, but it looks like those two seasons were enough. Deadline broke the story that the premium network has chosen not to continue with the series, which is currently airing — its season (and now series) finale is scheduled for this Friday. The network released the following statement:

“Magic City” will be concluding its two-season run on Starz with Friday’s series finale. We are tremendously proud of the series and everyone involved. From the writers, to the cast and crew, it has been an incredible collaboration. This was a story born from Mitch Glazer’s singular vision of Miami, the Magic City of his childhood, and we are grateful to him for bringing it to life on Starz. The season’s story arc will allow us to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the series, and we thank all the fans who checked in to the Miramar Playa.

Created by Mitch Glazer (“Scrooged,” “Passion Play”), “Magic City” stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Ike Evans, owner of a high-end Miami Beach hotel, who’s been increasingly unwillingly partnered with gangster Ben Diamond (Danny Huston). Olga Kurylenko, Steven Strait and Kelly Lynch are also part of the cast, as is James Caan, who joined the show in its second season.

The show had all the right trappings, including plenty of fab period beachy costuming, but never attracted serious viewership or critical attention. Starz, which also canceled Chicago political drama “Boss” after two seasons, has been moving toward more genre- and action-oriented programming lately, with the David Goyer historical fantasy series “Da Vinci’s Demons” due back for another season in 2014 and the Michael Bay-produced pirate show “Black Sails” set to premiere in January.
