WT Clients: AGC Studios and Gianni Nunnari Begin Filming ‘Those About to Die’

Production has begun in Rome on the new gladiator action series presented by Weintraub client AGC Studios along with High End Productions, “Those About to Die.” Directed by Roland Emmerich (“Independence Day”), the series features a star-studded cast led by Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”) and including Iwan Rheon (“Game of Thrones”) and Johannes Haukur Johannesson (“Vikings”).

The large-scale series was ordered straight-to-series last summer by Peacock. Executive producers include Emmerich, screenwriter Robert Rodat, Street Entertainment’s Harald Kloser, and Weintraub Client Gianni Nunnari (“300”), who acquired the rights to Daniel Mannix’s nonfiction book upon which the series is based.

AGC Studios and Nunnari are represented by Weintraub Shareholder Alan Grodin. Production legal for the series is being handled by Weintraub shareholder Tara Sattler.
