Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson play together in ‘The Lost City of Z.’
‘The Lost City of Z’ is an upcoming movie based on the non-fiction book of 2009 ‘The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon’ by American author David Grann.
It tells the story of the legendary British explorer Percy Fawcett. He disappeared with his son Jack in the Amazon jungle (Mato Grosso region of Brazil) while looking for an ancient lost city in 1925.
Afterwards, about 100 people have disappeared searching for Percy Fawcett. David Grann made his own search, finding new evidence about how Fawcett died and showing that Z may have really existed.
The Lost City of Z was optioned by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company and Paramount Pictures in 2010. The film is in pre-production now. It will be directed by James Gray, who also wrote the screenplay.
Actor Charlie Hunnam will play the role as Percy Fawcett, Sienna Miller as Fawcett’s wife, and Robert Pattinson as Henry Costin.
The mysterious city is referenced in a document, known as Manuscript 512, housed at the National Library of Rio de Janeiro by Portuguese João da Silva in 1753. The city was described in great detail without providing a specific location. Thrilling!
Do you think that da Silva was talking about a real city or about mystic experience? Is The Lost City of Z the end of an initiatory path? Anyway, the movie by James Gray must be sensational. Don’t you think so? Tell us your opinion now!
**Charlie Hunnam’s current projects also include ‘Crimson Peak,’ and “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.”
**Robert Pattinson current projects also include ‘The Childhood of a Leader’ and ‘Brimstone.’
