EXCLUSIVE: Carrie-Anne Moss has joined the cast of Pompeii, the Paul W.S. Anderson-directed 3D action adventure film. Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Jessica Lucas and Jared Harris also star in the film, which began shooting last month in Pompeii and is now in Toronto. Set in 79 A.D., Milo, a slave-turned-invincible gladiator, finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Flavia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman General. As Mt. Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once-magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him. Moss is playing Flavia’s mother.

Script was written by Lee and Janet Scott Batchler, Michael Robert Johnson and Julian Fellowes. Pic’s a co-production between Constantin Film and Impact Pictures, and produced by Anderson and his Impact Pictures producing partner Jeremy Bolt. Robert Kulzer is producing for Constantin alongside Don Carmody. Martin Moszkowicz is executive producer.

Moss has been able to work in the film with her schedule on the CBS series Vegas. She’s repped by WME and Hodgson Management.
