We first reported on this drama back in August, which is the first project to be developed under Legendary Pictures' new Legendary East banner. The story centers on how The Great Wall of China was built, and the mysterious circumstances which lead China to construct it. No character details were given for Henry Cavill's role.
Edward Zwick is directing The Great Wall from a script he is co-writing with Marshall Herskovitz. The project is based on an original idea by Legendary Pictures executive Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks.
