The wonderful yet lonely writer Loretta Sage (Sandra Bullock) has spent her career writing about exotic places in her popular romance adventure novels. Their covers are always decorated with photos of the handsome Alan (Channing Tatum), who firmly believes that he is indeed Dash, the main character of Loretta’s books. Neither of them is expecting their fates to intertwine in a book.
“The Lost City”. When a writer is pulled into an imaginary world with a cover model
During the tour where Loretta is promoting her new book with Alan, the writer is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe), who hopes that the woman will manage to lead him to the treasure of an ancient lost city in her recent history. Wanting to prove that he can be a hero in real life, and not just in the pages of books, Alan sets out to the rescue. Pulled into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely couple will have to work together to defeat the elements and find an ancient treasure before it is gone forever.
In an interview with “EW” Bullock and Tatum confirm that the comparisons to the movie “Love, Emerald and the Crocodile” with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas are definitely not accidental. – Such films are not made anymore. We want to see if we can hit the jackpot with a new version of the story embedded in the genre. It’s a really special thing, says Tatum. On the other hand, Bullock, who is the producer of “The Lost City”, emphasizes that the film reverses the typical adventure configuration in which the male character is a loner type and the female character is open to challenges. – It’s funny that you can take the usual patterns so easily and make them new. Now we won’t say “this is a typical female role”, “this is a typical male role”. We can have fun with it and create a completely fresh dynamic. That’s what we did here.
In addition to Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe, the film also features Brad Pitt, who is also ready to step into the action to save the world. In addition, the cast includes Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Oscar Nuñez, Patti Harrison and Bowen Yang.
