    Russell Crowe announced he would be filming his next big budget movie in Sydney just last week.

    And on Thursday, the Oscar-winning actor enjoyed a bike ride through the New South Wales capital with his girlfriend Britney Theriot, 30.

    Sydney’s lockdown didn’t stop the 57-year-old and the American beauty from getting their daily exercise.

    The pair also stopped at a crossing and waited for the lights to change before going through to the next street.

    The couple’s exercise outing comes after the actor announced he will transform Sydney into a Hollywood movie set for new flick, Poker Face.

    Russell, who will direct as well as star in the action-thriller, has already picked out several iconic locations for the film’s set pieces, according to The Daily Telegraph.

    The movie will feature a high speed car chase inside the Harbour Tunnel, as well as showcase the $140 million penthouse atop James Packer’s Crown Residences and ‘a sprawling Point Piper mansion overlooking Sydney Harbour’. 

    The rest of the film will likely be shot at Moore Park’s Fox Studios.

    While the film was originally set in Miami, Florida, Crowe has reportedly demanded the film be filmed and set in Sydney.

    According to Deadline, Poker Face tells the tale of a tech billionaire called Jake (played by Russell) who gathers his childhood friends to his estate for what turns into a high stakes game of poker.

    ‘Those friends have a love hate relationship with the host, a master game-player/planner, and he has concocted an elaborate scheme designed to bring a certain justice to all of them,’ Deadline reports. 

    Joining Crowe in the cast will be Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA, while his fellow Oscar winner Natalie Portman is ‘circling a role’.
