Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy) has taken a lead role in director James Gray’s The Lost City of Z. Previously-announced stars for this movie include Sienna Miller (Foxcatcher, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga). Hunnam is set to play Col. Percival Fawcett in the adaptation of author David Grann’s best-selling book.
The Lost City of Z follows Fawcett, a British colonial who disappeared in the 1920s while searching for a mythical city in the Amazon jungles of Brazil that he believed he discovered on a prior expedition.
Production on the film is set to commence during the summer of 2015.
