Paul W.S. Anderson will direct the period disaster project Pompeii for Constantin Film and Summit Entertainment, after the trio release The Three Musketeers in October.

Scripted by Lee Batchler and Janet Scott Batchler, Pompeii will center around the romance between a slave and the daughter of the slave's master amid the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 and destruction of Pompeii.

No actors have been cast and no start date's been set.
