Pierce Brosnan to play Louis XIV
EXCLUSIVE: Good Universe is handling international sales on Pandemonium’s The Moon And The Sun starring Pierce Brosnan and will introduce to buyers in Cannes.
The fantasy-adventure centres on imagined events during the reign of King Louis XIV as the French leader’s bid for immortality leads him to capture and attempt to steal the life force from a mermaid, to be played by rising Chinese star Fan Bingbing.
Complications arise when the Sun King’s 18-year-old illegitimate daughter Marie-Josephe falls for the mermaid’s keeper and risks everything trying to set him and the mythical creature free.
Sean McNamara, whose credits include Soul Surfer, will direct The Moon And The Sun.
Pandemonium head Bill Mechanic will produce and adapted Vonda McIntyre’s novel with co-writers Barry Berman, James Schamus and Laura Harrington.
