The Lost City of Z to Film in Belfast Early 2015
Brad Pitt’s Plan B company will start filming the story of explorer Percy Fawcett, who disappeared in the rainforest in 1925, in Belfast early next year.
The film, also starring Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson, tells the tale of Fawcett, as penned by US author David Grann.
Fawcett and his son had been searching for evidence of an ancient lost city and their disappearance sparked searches by explorers and scientists alike.
It is thought that up to 100 people died or vanished without trace during ill-fated expeditions to discover Fawcett’s fate or traces of the ancient civilisation he had been seeking to prove once existed.
