POMPEII Disaster Movie Explodes in 2012

The Director of Resident Evil: Afterlife and the soon to be seen The Three Musketeers, Paul W.S. Anderson has agreed to direct a big budget film based on the real explosion of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. This would need to be treated with respect but also it would need some big effects. Out of the last two BIG volcano movies, Dante’s Peak and Volcano, I preferred the Peirce Brosnon lead Dante’s Peak.

Set in late summer 79 A.D., Pompeii revolves around the slave of a shipping tycoon who dreams of the day he can buy his freedom and marry his master’s daughter. What the slave doesn’t know is that she’s already been promised to a corrupt Roman senator, while he’s been sold to another owner.

Just when things can’t get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius erupts with the power of 40 nuclear bombs. But the slave is trapped on a ship headed for Naples, separated from his love and best friend, a gladiator who is trapped in the city’s coliseum. As fire and ash destroy the only world he’s ever known, the slave is determined to get back and rescue them.
