Paul W.S. Anderson has been putting together a great cast for his volcanic adventure love story Pompeii. The most recent actor to join the cast of the 3D production is Kiefer Sutherland who will be playing the villain.
The movie is set in 79 A.D. and the story plays out days before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which is one of history’s greatest disasters. The movie stars Kit Harington as a slave stuck on a ship who must race against time to save his true love, his master’s daughter, as well as his best friend, a gladiator trapped in the coliseum when the destruction begins.
Jared Harris was previously cast as Harington’s master, a wealthy merchant, and then there's the beautiful Emily Browning who will be playing his daughter. Sutherland will play a Roman senator "who enslaved Harington’s village. The scheming senator forces the merchant to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to him."
I'm not the biggest fan of Anderson's directing Style, and his use of 3D sucks. Just because he makes a lot of 3D films doesn't mean he's good at it. I like the cast he's put together for the movie though! The film is currently shooting in Toronto.
