Lost City of Z adds Spider-Man star Tom Holland and begins filming in Ireland
Production has commenced on James Gray’s Lost City of Z, starring Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, and Spider-Man star Tom Holland. The movie will first be filmed in Belfast for five weeks and continue filming in Colombia throughout September and October.
David Grann’s acclaimed New York Times best-selling book serves as the basis for the movie which MICA Entertainment is financing. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing via Plan B Entertainment along with Anthony Katagas and Dale Johnson. MadRiver Pictures’ Marc Butan is executive producing as are MICA Entertainment’s Julie B. May and Glenn Murray. Sierra/Affinity is representing international sales of the title with CAA overseeing domestic rights to the film.
Lost City of Z follows Percy Fawcett, a conscripted soldier and born explorer 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. Paramount is expected to release the film sometime in 2016.
Holland will have his Marvel Cinematic Universe introduction as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and will follow that up with a starring role in Sony/Marvel’s Untitled Spider-Man Reboot for summer 2017 release. He will next be seen opposite Chris Hemsworth in Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea.
