The Film Stage spoke to Dede Gardner one of the producers of Lost City of Z and this makes me nervous.  Although Benedict Cumberbatch told Vertigo and myself back in May that this was going to be a difficult film to put together (ok typing that never gets old still can’t believe we met that gorgeous man)

“We will. As a last question, two of my favorites filmmakers you’ve worked with, James Gray and Terrence Malick, and I’ve heard updates on Lost City of Z. Is that a project still going forward?

I don’t know yet. I’m trying. It’s another one I’m trying. I really love James and really hope [this] summer.”

Fingers and everything else tightly crossed.  Last we had heard filming was supposed to commence in April 2015.

Updated with extract from Indiewire:

“What’s going on with James Gray’s “The Lost City Of Z” other than having two stars attached in Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Pattinson? Well, like many ambitious indies out there, it’s seemingly struggling to get all its financing in place. But there is movement on the horizon. In various interviews with Vogue and The L.A. TimesSienna Miller has stated that she’ll be joining Gray’s Amazonian mystery about a British explorer who ventured into the Amazon jungle in search of a fabled civilization, and never returned to his family.

Cumberbatch is set to play the lead Percival Fawcett, Pattinson is said to play Henry Costin, a bored British corporal who answers Fawcett’s advertisement for a jungle adventure abroad, and Miller would presumably play Fawcett’s wife as there aren’t many other main female characters in the book.”

From We’ve Got This Covered:

“As for when we’ll be seeing The Lost City of Z, producer Dede Gardner (part of Brad Pitt’s Plan B shingle) recently expressed optimism that shooting would commence sometime next summer. The production start date keeps getting pushed back as a budget is negotiated and more stars are locked into place, but let’s keep our fingers crossed that all involved can stick to the current plan and put The Lost City of Z out in time for it to contend for awards in the fall of 2016.”

    This one still seems to be on shaky ground. All fingers and toes will remain crossed until the cameras start to roll in Z

    Here’s hoping, so worth waiting for. Wishing all of you girls at RPAU and those commenting all the very best for 2015. Hope everyone had as good a Christmas Day as we did. Thanks RPAU for another year of all the up to date news on Rob. In antiicipation of his next film release, which for me is Maps to the Stars. Cheers.

    Maria, if this makes YOU nervous, it absolutely terrifies me, especially since Idol’s Eye was put on hold indefinitely. All these teases! – this industry is so fickle. Let’s try and look on the bright side…

    Wow for this amazing poster!!! Jules YOU ROCK!!!!! And I agree with all of you it will be such a pity if this one doesn’t get made either. Cause I’m sure it’s an amazing story. You said it Carmel, this industry is so fickle.

    While there is a will, there is a way. Obviously a lot of people are trying to make this happen. Hopefully they succeed
