The Lost City of Z stars, Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson, were both recently spotted in the streets of Belfast sporting impressive beards as they film for their upcoming movie. A few fortunate fans were able to catch the stars in action, and one was even able to get the stars to pose together.
In fact, one fan, Nikki Fynn (@nikki_fynn), posted an image on Instagram of Hunnam and Pattinson. Hunnam can be seen wearing a flat cap with a scruffy beard to go along with his goatee, while Pattinson is wearing a ball cap and sporting a full beard.
The two men are currently in Northern Ireland for the production of their latest film, The Lost City of Z. The movie is based on the critically acclaimed and highly successful book of the same title by David Grann.
The movie centers on the story of Colonel Percy Fawcett, a British explorer who vanished while attempting to discover the mysterious city in the Amazon. The film also stars Sienna Miller and is produced by Brad Pitt.
Meanwhile, sightings of Charlie Hunnam have been filling up social media accounts, with several fans catching the Sons of Anarchy alum on the streets. For his part, Hunnam seems more than happy to pose with quite a few fans, who quickly took to Instagram to share their encounter with the star.
At the same time, with the two actors in Belfast to film The Lost City of Z, Pattinson has been getting close with Brad Pitt. “He and Rob have been in regular contact about his role and they’ve since formed a real friendship,” an inside source recently told OK! Magazine.
The source added that Pitt wanted Pattinson to star in the movie after several other actors found the shooting schedule to be too intense. “Brad fought for Rob to join the cast alongside Charlie Hunnam and Sienna Miller. The complicated plans for the six-month shoot are freaking everyone out, but Brad’s now happy they’ve got the perfect cast.”
Following his success on the Twilight series, the new film marks another movie for Pattinson that is outside of the mainstream Hollywood scene. This fact is something that his his former Twilight producer, Wyck Godfrey, took note of in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
“They’ve [Pattinson and Kristen Stewart] each been really smart about the way they’ve followed up their Twilight careers in that they’ve not jumped into big studio fare in general. They’ve chosen directors and movies based on the movie, not the size of the movie.”
Catch Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson in The Lost City of Z when it hits theaters sometime in 2016.
