Filming Begins On The Epic “Pompeii”

Posted: March 14, 2013 in Movie and T.V. News

Production began earlier today on Paul WS Anderson’s “Pompeii” in the actual city of Pompeii.

Constantin Film and Impact Pictures are producing the film which will spend the next two weeks on location at the uncovered ancient Roman city before moving to Toronto on March 28th.

Jared Harris has just joined the cast which is lead by Kit Harington and Emily Browning. The story follows a slave turned invincible gladiator who tries to save his love from a corrupt Roman General as Mount Vesuvius erupts.

Lee Batchler, Janet Scott Batchler, Michael Robert Johnson and Julian Fellowes worked on the screenplay, and Summit Entertainment will distribute the film next year in North America.

Anderson and Jeremy Bolt are producing.
