Producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, whose last toga pic was 300, will package and produce Exclusive Media Group’s new historical drama based on the early life of Julius Caesar. The movie hopes to be the first in a trilogy based on Conn Iggulden’s bestselling Emperor book series. William Broyles (Flags of Our Fathers) has written the script. Nunnari and Canton are currently producing another historical epic, The Immortals, for Relativity Media and Universal. Exclusive hopes to start filming within the next few months, although no director is yet attached. Exclusive is selling 6 movies here at the market including 3D children’s animation The Flying Machine, starring Heather Graham; 3D horror movie The Woman In Black; and Martin Scorsese’s George Harrison documentary Living In the Material World.
