Charlie Hunnam heads to Belfast and Colombia
Principal photography gets underway in the next ten days on The Lost City of Z, based on the account by David Grann of British explorer Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett (Hunnam) who, in 1925, disappeared with his son in the Mato Grosso region of Amazonian Brazil while searching for an ancient lost civilisation.
Since then, it is estimated that around 100 others have died or gone missing while trying to uncover the fate of the original expedition.
Director James Gray is calling the shots from his own screenplay; producers include Brad Pitt and his Plan B colleagues Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner, along with Marc Butan, Dale Armin Johnson and Anthony Katagas. The feature comes from LA-based MICA Entertainment.
