Ben Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, pictured left) is in talks to join Henry Cavill (the new Superman in Man of Steel, pictured right) in Legendary East's The Great Wall. Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai) is directing the pic which explores the mystery of just how China's Great Wall was constructed. Walker and Cavill will play 15th century soldiers who discover the wall was built to keep out more than the Mongols, it also kept out monsters. Zhang Ziyi (TMNT, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) is also reportedly being considered for a role.
Zwick co-wrote the script with his frequent writing partner Marshall Herskovitz; both also serve as producers as well as Legendary's Thomas Tull and Max Brooks, who came up with the idea.
