‘Lost City Of Z’ To Close New York Film Festival

‘Lost City Of Z’ To Close New York Film Festival

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has set as its closing film The Lost City Of Z, the period adventure that James Gray directed and scripted from the David Grann nonfiction book. The film, which stars Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, will make its world premiere at the festival’s final gala screening on Saturday, October 15.

Pic tells the story of Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), the British military man-turned-explorer whose search for a lost city deep in the Amazon grows into an increasingly feverish, decades-long magnificent obsession that takes a toll on his reputation, his home life with his wife (Miller) and family. His plunge into the Amazon, shot by cinematographer Darius Khondji, alternates between rapture and dizzying terror.

Said New York Film Festival director and selection committee chair Kent Jones: “James Gray is one of the finest filmmakers we have. Each of his movies is so beautifully wrought, visually and emotionally, but The Lost City Of Z represents something new. It’s a true epic, spanning two continents and three decades, and it’s a genuine vision of the search for sublimity.”

Said Gray, whose 2014 film The Immigrant played in the 51st New York Film Festival, called the selection “truly a dream come true for me to have The Lost City Of Z selected for the closing night of the New York Film Festival. “I couldn’t be more honored that the film’s world premiere will be in my hometown, a city I still love above all others.”

Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Anthony Katagas, and Dale Armin Johnson produced, and Brad Pitt and Marc Butan are the exec producers.

NYFF previously announced that Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th will open the festival, while the Mike Mills-directed 20th Century Women will premiere in the Centerpiece slot.

Studiocanal Acquires Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson’s ‘Lost City of Z’ for Multiple Territories

PARIS– Pan-European major Studiocanal has acquired James Gray’s anticipated “Lost City of Z,” starring Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland, in multiple territories.

Studiocanal will distribute the action-adventure film in France, the U.K., Germany and Australia/New Zealand.

Sold by Sierra/Affinity, “Lost City of Z” is produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner via Plan B Entertainment along with Anthony Katagas and Dale Johnson.

Based on David Grann’s 2009 novel, “Lost City of Z” follows the adventures of Percy Fawcett, a soldier and explorer who embarked with his son on an expedition to find the mythical kingdom of El Dorado in the Amazon jungles of Brazil and disappeared.

The ambitious pic marks Gray’s follow-up to “The Immigrant,” his 2013 period drama with Marion Cotillard that world premiered in competition at Cannes. “Lost City of Z,” however, is not expected to play in Cannes since it’s still in early post and will not be completed in time for the festival.

MadRiver Pictures’ Marc Butan is exec producing with Mica’s Julie B. May and Glenn Murray. Mica Entertainment is financing.

“Lost City of Z” shot in Belfast, Northern Ireland and in Colombia. Sierra/Affinity unveiled a promo at the EFM.

According to U.TV both Charlie and his co-star Sienna Miller were seen filming in Ballintoy. “The seaside village which has already become used to global attention, given previous filming of popular fantasy series Game of Thrones.”

The Lost City of Z centres on legendary British explorer Percy Fawcett, who ventured into the Amazon jungle in search of a fabled civilization in 1925 and never returned.

Miller plays Fawcett’s wife Nina, while Pattinson plays Fawcett’s fellow explorer Henry Costin.

The film is directed by James Gray, while Brad Pitt is among the producers.

Congratulations to Charlie! It’s very exciting to see so many new projects lined up for him. As a fan I could not be happier for his continued success.

Charlie Hunnam will star in James Gray’s “Lost City of Z” alongside Sienna Miller and Robert Pattinson. The project has just locked down financing from MICA Entertainment.

Sierra/Affinity will continue international sales at the Berlin Film Festival this week. CAA represents domestic rights.

Production is expected to start this summer. The project is based on David Grann’s 2009 book of the same name.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing through their Plan B Entertainment along with Dale Johnson and Anthony Katagas. Marc Butan is exec producing with MICA Entertainment’s Julie B. May and Glenn Murray.

Hunnam will portray Percy Fawcett, a British surveyor 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.

Benedict Cumberbatch had been attached to play the Fawcett part in “The Lost City of Z” in 2013 but opted last year to join Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.”

Hunnam is currently in production as the lead on Warner Bros.’ “Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur” from director Guy Ritchie. He will next be seen in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak” and recently wrapped his starring role in FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”
