Hollywood is buzzing with the news that Russell Crowe is finally completing the hat trick.
Yes, after conquering acting and singing (if you can call what he does with band Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts that), Renaissance man Crowe has finally set his sights on directing.
For his first feature film, Crowe plans to direct Bra Boys for Universal and Imagine Entertainment. Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man) will produce and Stuart Beattie (Collateral, Derailed) will write the script.
Bra Boys is a drama based on Australia's real-life counterculture surf community. The title comes from the name of a surf gang from Maroubra (i.e., Marou-BRA), a Sydney surburb. It will be inspired by a documentary of the same name (narrated by Crowe) that followed three brothers who instigated the underground surf gang movement.
