The Lost City of Z Unearthed Quicker?

Director James Gray’s planned film adaptation of David Grann’s non-fiction book “The Lost City of Z” may be going into production a bit sooner than expected.

Screen Daily reports that once Brad Pitt wraps up filming Bennett Miller’s “Moneyball”, ‘Z’ will be the project he immediately jumps into.

If it goes ahead, Pitt would play Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, a former decorated British soldier turned early 20th century explorer who, along with his son, disappeared in 1925 during an expedition to find an ancient lost city in the uncharted jungles of the Amazon.

Gray adapted the screenplay and it’s expected that Pitt’s Plan B will produce.
