Matthew Fox is set to star in the political thriller Emperor!
The 45-year-old Lost alum will play a general in the tale inspired by true events.
“Emperor is an epic story of love and understanding set amidst the uncertainties of the days following the Japanese surrender at the end of WWII, when General Douglas MacArthur served as the de facto ruler of Japan as supreme commander of the occupying forces,” Variety reports.
Production will begin at the end of the month – actors will film scenes in both New Zealand and Japan.
“We are thrilled to be working with Matthew Fox who is a fine actor and whose maturity and appeal fits perfectly with our film’s aesthetic,” producer Gary Foster shared.
