Brad Pitt Seeks 'Lost City of Z'
Pitt will star as real-life British soldier
Pitt is set to star in "The Lost City of Z," according to Variety. He'll play Percy Fawcett, a British adventurer who inspired characters from The Shadow to Indiana Jones. Fawcett eventually focused his explorations on Brazil, where he was convinced he would find a lost city called, well, Z. Perhaps he did; Fawcett disappeared in early 1925, and his fate remains a mystery.
The movie will adapt an upcoming non-fiction book by David Grann, and will be helmed by "We Own the Night" director James Gray, according to Variety.
Pitt, 45, can be seen in theaters Dec. 25 in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
