Kurt Johnstad ("300," "Act of Valor") has come onboard to pen the historical action epic "The Lost Legion" for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The story deals with the first encounter between two of the most powerful forces in the history of civilization, the Roman Empire and the Han Dynasty of ancient China.
In 53 BC, a Roman legion was defeated in the Middle East and the surviving Roman soldiers were sold into slavery in Mongolia.
An intrepid band of Chinese warriors freed the legionnaires from captivity, and teamed up to defend China from the fiercest army in history. Dan Lin is producing.
