Emily Browning And Jared Harris Join Kit Harington In POMPEII
THR reports that Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and Jared Harris (Benjamin Button, Mad Men, Lincoln. Sherlock Holmes 2) have joined the cast of Paul W.S. Anderson's (Three Musketeers) Pompeii which has Game of Thrones star Kit Harington (Seventh Son, Silent Hill 2) in the lead. You might remember Jared had a supporting role in Resident Evil 2 which could be how Anderson wrangled him into this project. Let's just hope the film ends up a little more coherent than his Resident Evil movies since it does seem to have an interesting setting and potential to be an entertaining flick.
Pompeii is set in 79 A.D. and follows Milo (Kit Harington), a slave-turned-invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Flavia (Emily Browning), a wealthy merchant's daughter who unwillingly has been betrothed to a corrupt Roman general. Jared Harris will play Flavia's father Lucretius.
