Set in late summer 79 A.D., the story revolves around the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, from the point of view of a slave (Harington) of a shipping tycoon in love with his master’s daughter, and a gladiator fighting for his freedom. Sutherland will play a Roman senator who enslaved Harington’s village. The scheming senator forces the merchant to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to him.
Producing will be Paul WS Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, Martin Moszkowicz and Don Carmody.
Sutherland is currently starring in Fox’s “Touch” and will next be seen in “Our Lady of Jackson Heights”.
He is repped by CAA.
