Land of Bad: Unveiling the Cast of the Russell Crowe-Led Action Movie

Australian actor Russell Crowe will play the co-lead on director William Eubank’s action thriller Land of Bad. The movie is scheduled for release in theaters on February 16, 2024. The last time film audiences and fans watched Crowe in an action film was in the 2020 action thriller Unhinged.

William Eubank’s Land of Bad is a military action film that centers on a veteran USAF drone pilot, Reaper, and his rookie partner, providing support for a US Army Delta Force team. When the Delta Force mission is intercepted within enemy lines, the lives of surviving team members rest on the shoulders of Reaper and his drone tactical assault. Land of Bad features three top Aussie actors and an amazing supporting cast. These are the top cast members of William Eubank’s Land of Bad (2024).

While a growing number of film audiences and fans long to see Russell Crowe shed some weight and return to action, Land of Bad (2024) definitely isn’t the film. Although he leads the cast, Crowe, who plays Reaper, sits behind a screen as a drone pilot. As a veteran USAF drone pilot, Crowe’s character is called upon to give air support to a Delta Force team trapped behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Although he doesn’t get involved in much of the action, his voice is heard for most of Land of Bad’s runtime. Although Russell Crowe takes on less active roles today, he is regarded as one of the greatest actors of the 21st century.

Russell Crowe’s last role on the big screen saw him portray Rome’s exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, in The Pope’s Exorcist (2023). Crowe is more popularly known for his roles in L.A. Confidential (1997), The Insider (1999), Gladiator (2000), A Beautiful Mind (2001), and Cinderella Man (2005). The Australian actor has starred in several big-budget films in every decade.
