“Pompeii is the kind of big and bold film we all love to go to the movies to experience,” said FilmDistrict’s Peter Schlessel.
“We believe the film’s scope and storyline will resonate well with US moviegoers, and we are pleased to once again team with Sony on bringing a film to theaters and beyond.”
The screenplay for Pompeii, which is currently in production, was written by Lee Batchler, Janet Scott Batchler, Michael Robert Johnson and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.
