    James Gray, who directed Two Lovers, which has the distinction of being actor Joaquin Phoenix's final film, will direct Brad Pitt in The Lost City of Z. Gray will also adapt the non-fiction book written by David Grann. Pitt will play Percy Fawcett, a British soldier and spy.

    The story of Fawcett is an intriguing one. He headed to the jungles of the Amazon to explore and became obsessed with finding an advanced civilization called Z. Fawcett was convinced that the city existed deep within the jungles and was determined to locate it. He and his son disappeared into the Jungle in 1925 on a quest to find the City of Z and were never seen nor heard from again.

    The book is scheduled to be published by Doubleday in April. Pitt's Plan B shingle will produce the film under Paramount.
