Evil Dead star Jessica Lucas has joined the cast of Paul W.S. Anderson's period disaster movie Pompeii, says a story at Deadline. She joins Emily Browning, Kit Harington, Jared Harris, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Kiefer Sutherland in the Summit Entertainment project.

Based on the world's most famous volcanic eruption, Pompeii centers on Milo (Harington), the slave of a shipping tycoon who dreams of the day he can buy his freedom and marry his master's daughter, Flavia (Browning). What Milo doesn't know is that she's already been promised to a corrupt Roman senator, while he's been sold to another owner in Naples. Just when things can't get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius erupts, prompting Milo to head back to Pompeii to rescue his love and his best friend, a gladiator (Akinnuoye-Agbaje) who's trapped in the city's coliseum.

Lucas will play a personal slave and friend to Browning's Flavia.

Anderson and Jeremy Bolt are producing Pompeii through their Impact Pictures along with Robert Kulzer and Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin Film. Lee Batchler and Janet Scott Batchler wrote the script, which was revised by Julian Fellowes. Financed and produced by Constantin Film, the movie will be distributed by Lionsgate/Summit in North America.
