Berlin: Charlie Hunnam Joins ‘Lost City of Z’

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.”

Plan B’s recent films include “Selma,” “12 Years a Slave” and “World War Z.”

Hunnam is represented by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment.
