THE LOST CITY OF Z is an upcoming action adventure biographical film written and directed by James Gray (The Immigrant), based on David Grann’s 2009 nonfiction bestseller. It stars Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Tom Holland.
Premiered as closing night film at the 2016 New York Film Festival and received positive reviews, the film tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett – supported by his devoted wife (Miller), son (Holland) and aide de camp (Pattinson) – returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
