We’ve heard the old story of POMPEII.. an entire city buried under lava. Constantin Film is developing the movie with Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson and Hollywood Reporter said Jared Harris has joined Emily Browning and Kit Harrington in this period disaster movie set in the 70 A.D. eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the story will have Harrington play Milo, a slave of a shipping tycoon, who dreams of someday buying his freedom and marry his master’s daughter, Flavia (Browning) but unbeknownst to Milo, the love of his life has been promised to a corrupt Roman senator and Milo has been promised to another owner in Naples. Mt. Vesuvius erupts, Milo wuld have to rescue his love and his best friend/a gladiator.
Harris plays Flavia’s dad and Milo’s master, Lucretius
Do plots, especially love romance plots matter in disaster movies? Some worked like in the case of Titanic, but sometimes we just wanna see the world blow up like in 2012.
