Russell Crowe’s directorial debut to be released in April by Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. Pictures says it has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to actor Russell Crowe’s directorial debut — The Water Diviner — from RatPac Entertainment.

Set for release April 24, the big-screen drama stars Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Jai Courtney, Ryan Corr, James Fraser, Ben O’Toole and Isabel Lucas.

The announcement regarding its American release was made Friday by Greg Silverman, the studio’s president of creative development and worldwide production; Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution; and Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution.

Shot primarily on location in the wilds of the Australian outback and Turkey, the film is a post-war drama which follows an Aussie man on his travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli in search of his three missing sons.

“The studio has a long history with Russell, going back to his stellar breakthrough performance in L.A. Confidential. We’re excited to be collaborating with him again, this time on his directorial debut,” Silverman said in a statement.

“Russell has proven time and again what an incredible on-screen talent he is, and it’s a thrill for us to be able to bring not only his first feature behind the camera — but such a moving story — to U.S. audiences,” added Kroll.

Isabel Lucas Confirms She Is In Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups”

Isabel Lucas Confirms She Is In Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups,’ Says Film Will Be Out In 2015

Over the past few months, some of the actors who stopped by the set of Terrence Malick’s “Knight Of Cups” have shared their unique experiences working on the movie. Joel Kinnaman described having to deal with a seventeen-page monologue, Cate Blanchett called it a “quasi-religious” experience, Teresa Palmer talked about Malick’s method of “torpedoing” the actors, and Antonio Banderas thinks he’s made the final cut, though some of the material he doesn’t even remember shooting. And now another actress reveals that she too has probably survived the editing process, but adds that we’ll perhaps be waiting much longer to see the finished product.

Over the past few months, some of the actors who stopped by the set of Terrence Malick’s “Knight Of Cups” have shared their unique experiences working on the movie.

And now another actress reveals that she too has probably survived the editing process, but adds that we’ll perhaps be waiting much longer to see the finished product.

Yesterday we ran into “Electric Slide” actress Isabel Lucas and her director on that film, Tristan Patterson, as they made their rounds at the Tribeca Film Festival. We couldn’t help but ask what she had coming up next, partially because we were kind of curious if she was going to pop up in the next “Transformers” movie (remember when she was Shia LeBeouf’s robotic dorm room seductress in “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen”?) Instead, she gave us some details about her involvement in “Knight Of Cups,” including a potential release date.

“I worked with Terrence Malick right before working with Tristan, two years ago,” Lucas revealed. “So ‘Knight of Cups’ will be coming out next year.”

When we joked that we hope she had made the cut, since you never know with Terrence Malick films, Lucas confirmed that she had communicated with the elusive director and that he had made it very clear that she was still in the movie. “He said I am definitely in the film.” Patterson interjected: “She did ADR!”

As always you never really know until it’s all put together, but you can probably count on Isabel Lucas definitely, probably, almost 100% being in “Knight of Cups.” As for the release, it looks like Malick is taking his time and is in no particular hurry to get it out there, so shrug off thoughts of a festival premiere later this year and keep your eyes on 2015.

Sydney Style Edit Q&A with Isabel

February 1st 2014 • by Jess • No CommentsStyle

Big thanks to an anonymous visitor for pointing out this fab new Q&A with Isabel, in which she talks about her style, and how her choices are influenced by her dedication to the environment. There’s also a pretty new picture of Isabel and the blog author, taken back in December in Australia. Because it’s more of a ‘personal’ blog rather than a big commercial one I won’t re-post the interview here; instead, hop on over to Sydney Style Edit to read it for yourself.

Information section content updated

December 27th 2013 • by Jess • No CommentsSite Update

Final update for now is a small content one – the Filmography has been updated, information for Linneys has been written, the Charity page has been updated with information about Isabel’s Wilderness Society/Kimberley coastline work, and new Press interviews have been added. I think that brings our content up-to-date now! The sidebar has also been tidied up.

Isabel in Australian Vogue

Isabel looked so chic and stunning in the pages of the December issue of Australian Vogue! She posed in Chanel for a cricket-themed photoshoot for the magazine – there was no interview, unfortunately, as it was just a fashion spread. The photos are just gorgeous, and this is one of my new favourites of Isabel. Plus, we now know what she was doing in these photos ;-)

Isabel starring in Russell Crowe’s “The Water Diviner”!

December 27th 2013 • by Jess • No CommentsRumoured Role

I just happened to stop by Isabel’s management company’s Facebook page, and noticed a very exciting announcement:

16 December: Isabel Lucas wraps on the Australian Feature Film ‘The Water Diviner’ Directed by Russell Crowe.

This is such exciting news! Congratulations to Isabel on scoring such an important part. I’m surprised we hadn’t heard anything about it sooner. I wonder if it is the project Isabel mentioned in this recent interview? The Water Diviner is Russell Crowe’s directorial debut, and has been shooting in Sydney since the start of the month. Filming will continue (though not for Isabel according to the status above) in Turkey in the new year. IMDB lists the synopsis as being:

An Australian man travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons

Further down this post is an article from Variety about the project, and I will of course keep you updated with more details on Isabel’s role as and when they become available…

New project: ‘Engram’?

December 27th 2013 • by Jess • No CommentsRumoured Role

According to Isabel’s official CV/profile – from her management company – she has been working on a new short film entitled Engram. Isabel is listed as playing ‘Her’ in the project. It will be written and directed by Maggie Betts – whom Isabel was pictured with at the recent Armani event – and casted by Brette Goldstein.

After doing a bit of research I found this casting website, which is calling for actors to play the older versions of the main characters. It lists Aussie actor Oliver Ackland as co-starring with Isabel.

I will continue to look out for more info on this project, and if you have any more details on it then please get in touch!

As reported previously, Isabel is the new face of Australian jewellry brand Linneys 2014 ‘Cote D’Azur’ campaign. The campaign was launched in late November, and we now have lots of photos from it! Added to the Gallery are the photoshoot pictures, a behind the scenes shot, screencaps of Isabel from the official Linneys website, and captures from the campaign catalogue. Isabel looks so glamourous and confident!

You can browse the catalogue at Linneys’ official site, or through their Facebook page.





Brand ambassadors
Australian actress Isabel Lucas has been selected as ambassador for the new range, which will officially launch on Wednesday 27 November at an invitation-only event in Sydney.

Linney said Lucas had a natural beauty and elegance that perfectly suited the Cote d’Azur collection.

“Isabel is a well known Australian talent, especially with a younger demographic, so as well as being a beautiful model for the new collection she will also hopefully bring new clients to the Linneys brand as it continues to grow,” he explained.

In addition to the main collection, Lucas and the jewellery retailer have collaborated to create a piece that will be auctioned to raise funds for the World Wildlife Fund. The pendant features 18-carat rose gold, an Australian South Sea pearl and diamonds valued at more than $3,000.

This is not the first time Linneys has worked with a celebrity in order to promote its collections. The 2013 Gardens of Eden range was fronted by Belgian Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Van Der Steen and it has also used Australian personalities such as Jessica Marais, Melissa George, Jason Dundas and Ernie Dingo in its marketing.

Commenting on the importance of brand ambassadors, Linney said, “Ambassadors have provided our brand with an incredible platform from which we can launch our new collections and present them to the market on a more personal level.”
