1 May 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The Moon and the Sun, a fantasy adventure starring Pierce Brosnan, William Hurt, Fan Bing Bing and Benjamin Walker, is shooting in Melbourne after locationing in France, directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer, Bratz, Raise Your Voice) .

William Hurt has replaced Bill Nighy in one of the key supporting roles in The Moon and the Sun, a fantasy/adventure which starts shooting in Paris next week and moves to Melbourne in mid-April.

Pierce Brosnan heads the cast as King Louis Xiv, who is determined to protect the future of France by reigning for all eternity.
