The company has set a Feb. 28, 2014 release date for the actioner through Sony’s TriStar. “Pompeii” is the first pic to be set for that date.
“Pompeii” is set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79 and tells the tale of an enslaved gladiator — played by Harington — who faces the tyrant (Sutherland) who years before murdered his family and now threatens to steal his lover, portrayed by Browning. Jared Harris, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pingue, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jessica Lucas round out the cast.
Lionsgate International will oversee international sales.
