Russell Crowe To Star In Sand & Blood

Ronan Bennett wrote the script, which tackles white slavery.

Oscar winner Russell Crowe is set to star in “In Sand and Blood” for IM Global, TheWrap has learned. It is unclear whether Crowe will direct the epic drama after recently making his directorial debut with “The Water Diviner.

Ronan Bennett wrote the script, which may be based on Dean King’s nonfiction book “Skeletons on the Zahara: A True Story of Survival.” Luc Roeg will produce, while IM Global’s Stuart Ford will executive produce.

In 1815, an American brig, the Commerce, was wrecked on the desolate coast fringing the Western Sahara. Starving and dying of thirst, its 12 man crew were captured, stripped, beaten and enslaved, kept barely alive on camel blood and urine. Five were never to be seen again, the others sold to a succession of tribesmen who bought and bartered each man for as little as a tattered blanket.

An Arab trader, Sidi Hamet, then bought Captain James Riley (Crowe) and some of his men, aiming only to sell them on at a profit. By impassioned advocacy and sheer bluff, Riley convinced Hamet that he would receive a far greater ransom from a European consul — that in truth existed only in Riley’s imagination — who was supposedly based in a Moroccan port a thousand miles to the north. What followed was an epic, terrifying and, for some, ultimately fateful trek across one of the most extreme environments on earth.

Crowe teased his involvement in the project last week in a cryptic tweet that suggested he had already begun researching his role.

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…
