May and Glenn Murray. Sierra/Affinity is continuing international sales of the title at this year’s European Film Market.  CAA represents the domestic rights to the film.  Production on the film is slated to commence during the summer of 2015.

LOST CITY OF Z follows Percy Fawcett, a British colonial 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.

Hunnam is currently in production on the Warner Bros. epic KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: KING ARTHUR from director Guy Ritchie, in which he plays the title role.

Tom Holland joins. Shooting already started, so you should probably move this to the main forums.  I think it's likely going to be a late 2016/early 2017 release.

Welcome to the jungle, Amazon.


The streaming giant is in final negotiations to acquire North American rights to the Charlie Hunnam drama The Lost City of Z, set in the Brazilian rain forest.


The film, which also stars Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller, is directed by James Gray and produced by Brad Pitt's Plan B.


The project, based on David Grann's best-selling book of the same name, was originally set up at Paramount, where Pitt has a first-look deal. But the studio stalled on getting the drama off the ground, and Gray took back the rights and assembled independent financing from MICA Entertainment.


As with all of its film deals, Amazon partners with traditional distributors to include a theatrical component to its releases, as it did with Woody Allen’s Cafe Society, Nicholas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon and Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship. Likewise, it will partner with a distributor for Lost City of Z at a later date, but insiders say Paramount may re-emerge in that capacity.


Lost City of Z will make its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 15 in the prime closing-night spot.

This is getting rave reviews at NYFF with some calling it as sure to be among the best movies of 2017.


Also, rave reviews across the board for Charlie Hunnam. Looks like the list of Bland White Dudes Hollywood Wants to Make Happen has lost a member!

I knew James Gray wouldn't let us down.
