Director Paul W.S. Anderson, the man behind the Resident Evil movies, is working on Pompeii, an action adventure drama movie set in Ancient times. For those who don’t know, Pompeii was an ancient Roman city, it was destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 meters of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Here’s the movie plot synopsis:
“Set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave on a ship heading for Naples works to get home to save the woman he loves and his best friend, a gladiator trapped inside the city’s coliseum.”
Since Director Paul W.S Anderson is helming the film I guess we may expect much action!
The cast includes Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jessica Lucas. The release date of Pompeii is set for February 28, 2014.
