|‘Lost City Of Z’ begins production|
James Gray’s long-gestating adventure has commenced shooting in Belfast and stars Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland.
MICA Entertainment finances Lost City Of Z, while Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner produce via Plan B alongside Anthony Katagas and Dale Johnson.
MadRiver Pictures’ Marc Butan serves as executive producer with MICA’s Julie B May and Glenn Murray. Sierra/Affinity represents international sales and CAA handles US rights.
The film, based on David Grann’s novel about an explorer who went missing in the Brazilian Amazon in the 1920s, is expected to shoot for five weeks in Belfast before relocating to Colombia throughout September and October.
The project has circled for years. Lotus Entertainment’s previous incarnation Inferno Entertainment introduced it to the market in Cannes in 2010, when Pitt was lined up to star.
