Casting Net: Russell Crowe in talks to direct and star in post-WWI pic; Plus, Alison Brie's inter-dimensional romantic comedy, more
• Russell Crowe (Man of Steel) is in talks to direct and star in The Water Diviner, a 1919-set film about an Australian man searching for his sons in Turkey following the Battle of Gallipoli — the Allied attempt, and failure, to capture the Ottoman capital. The Oscar winner’s next projects include Akiva Goldsman’s Winter’s Tale, and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. [Deadline]
• The Salma Hayek-produced animated feature, The Prophet, has lined up a pretty outstanding voice cast that includes Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Quvenzhané Wallis, Frank Langella, and Alfred Molina. Roger Allers (The Lion King) wrote the script based on Khalil Girbran’s 1923 book, and will direct the narrative, with a number of international directors lending their hands to direct “chapters” based on Girban’s 26 essays. Hayek also voices a character. [Deadline]
Summer in suburbia is what you make of it. For some, it’s a parent-controlled prison. For Joe Toy, it’s an opportunity for freedom.
In the trailer for The Kings of Summer (which premiered at Sundance as Toy’s House), we meet Joe (Nick Robinson), a not-completely-gawky teenage boy, delivering a shoddy-looking project to his teacher, who casually informs him that his final was due a week earlier and that school is in fact over for the year. Who is this kid who doesn’t realize it’s summer?
At home, Joe is at the disposal of his father, Frank (played by the always delightful Nick Offerman) who authoritatively takes the cell phone out of his son’s hand to end his conversation with a cute blonde girl so that he can go clean up the tools in the garage. “My house, my rules,” Frank tells Joe. Ah, the authority of fathers!
In the sweet, whimsical-looking trailer, we follow Joe and his two friends as they escape to the woods to build a house and create their own kingdom, set to the uplifting We Were Promised Jetpacks song “Keeping Warm.” Co-starring Megan Mullally (Offerman’s real-life spouse), Alison Brie, and Mary Lynn Rajskub, The Kings of Summer hits select theaters on May 31.
Check out the trailer below.

If you’re a fan of NBC sitcoms, then you’ll definitely want to watch the promo for Nick Offerman’s movie Somebody Up There Likes Me, which features Community‘s Alison Brie, Parks & Recreation‘s Adam Scott and Amy Poehler, and Offerman’s Parks & Rec ex-wife/real-world still-wife Megan Mullally.

Nov. 8 and Dec. 14. Save the dates.
That’s when this charming Sundance “modern love story” opens on-demand and in theaters, respectively. It features some of your favorite quirky on-screen sidekicks — Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, and Geoffrey Arend — stepping up and playing the lead roles. Caplan and Brie are sisters dating two best friends from a semi-successful rock band. Brie’s more responsible sister is eager to tie the knot with the more ambivalent Starr (Knocked Up). Caplan’s bookstore clerk isn’t sure what she wants, but it isn’t marriage.
