Former “Skins” actress Kaya Scodelario took to Instagram to showcase the very first set picture from upcoming film “The Moon and the Sun.” Besides Scodelario, the fantasy adaptation also stars Pierce Brosnan, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Benjamin Walker, and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing.
Based on the novel by Vonda McIntyre, “The Moon and the Sun” is about King Louis XIV’s (Brosnan) obsession with an eternal reign over France and his search for immortality. He thinks he may have found his solution when he captures a beautiful mermaid (Fan) to steal her life force. However, his plan may be compromised when his young, illegitimate daughter (Scodelario) discovers the creature and strikes up a friendship with her. “The Moon and the Sun” is being directed by Sean McNamara and is aiming for a 2015 release date.
