(LOS ANGELES) — Russell Crowe has found his next project. The Oscar winner will star in the upcoming thriller American Son, based on the critically acclaimed French film A Prophet, according to Variety.
American Son follows a prison inmate who, after falling under the control of a ruthless mobster — played by Crowe — builds a multicultural crime syndicate, earning a place alongside Italian and Russian mafias. Blue Story’s Andrew “Rapman” Onwubolu will direct.
Crowe’s next film, Unhinged, is slated for a July 1 release, making it the first movie to return to theaters since the COVID-19 pandemic forced their closure in March.
