Russell Crowe is set to make his directorial debut.

The 'Man of Steel' actor will helm his first feature film, 'The Water Diviner', and will also star in the project, according to Deadline.

The film is set in 1919 and centres on an Australian man who travels to Turkey to find his two sons after they go missing in the battle of Gallipoli.

The drama was written by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios and is set to be filmed in both Crowe's native Australia and Turkey.

Hopscotch Features' Troy Lum and Andrew Mason are set to produce the film alongside Keith Rodger from Fear of God Films.

Crowe's most recent role sees him play Jor-El, Superman's biological father, in summer blockbuster 'Man of Steel'. The Henry Cavill-starring film has already grossed $200 million worldwide since its release last week and has earned critical acclaim.

The 'Les Miserables' star will next be seen in Oscar-winning director Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah', which is set on the Biblical tale of Noah's Ark. The film co-stars Jennifer Connelly, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth.
