Amazon Picks Up James Gray’s ‘The Lost City Of Z’via The Playlist
THR reports that Amazon has stepped up and acquired the North American rights to the film, adding yet another recent film by a major auteur to their already impressive roster which includes Woody Allen, Park Chan-Wook, Nicolas Winding Refn, Jim Jarmusch, and more. As per usual, the streaming service will team up with a distributor to get the film in theaters, with Paramount Pictures as possibility to fill that role, which means you can probably expect a wide release for the movie. However, the question remains: when?
Based on the book by David Grann, and starring Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Tom Holland, the film will tell the true story of Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), the British military-man-turned-explorer, whose search for a lost city deep in the Amazon grows into an increasingly feverish, decades-long magnificent obsession that takes a toll on his reputation, his home life with his wife and children, and his very existence.
