When Universal acquired most European rights and a half-stake in Australia and New Zealand to Russell Crowe.s historical drama The Water Diviner, the Us was conspicuously not part of the deal.

The producers held back the Us rights, confident they could get better terms after they show extensive footage to the Hollywood majors and the bigger independents.

Reps from the Us companies will get their first chance to see a compilation of scenes during the Cannes film festival/market later this month.

Crowe stars as an Australian farmer who . four years after the battle of Gallipoli . travels to Istanbul to discover the fate of his sons, reported missing in the action. Olga Kurylenko plays the Turkish woman who owns the hotel in which he stays. The cast includes Jai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Robert Mammone and Cem Yilmaz.

The producers are Hopscotch Features. Andrew Mason and Troy Lum and Keith Rodger »
