Paul W.S. Anderson's ‘Pompeii’ Confirmed to Shoot in Toronto

Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii confirmed to shoot in Toronto Cinespace Film Studios Inc. today announced that their 30-acre Kipling Avenue Studio facility in Toronto has signed the film Pompeii with Impact Pictures Inc., a Germany-Canada co-production by Germany's Constantin Film and Canada's Don Carmody Productions.

To be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, Pompeii is set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, and will involve significant construction builds of ancient Roman architecture and considerable visual effects and computer generated imagery. The live action portions of the film will be captured in native 3-D.

President of Cinespace Steve Mirkopoulos said:

"This is the third Germany/Canada co-production by this same revered team to grace our newest, largest film campus in West Toronto and we are thrilled to have them back. We see this as a growing partnership between some of the most talented film producers and crew in the industry, and the highly experienced facility operators and staff here at Cinespace."

In 2011 and 2012, the same Germany/Canada team of Constantin Film and Don Carmody Productions also chose Cinespace to house Resident Evil: Retribution and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, respectively. Pompeii is slated to begin principal photography in April.

Pompeii was released February 21st, 2014.
