While he may not be as beloved as that other Paul Anderson, shlock-auteur Paul W.S. Anderson has never been hurting for work. His latest effort, the period-disaster 3D film “Pompeii” has seen a flurry of casting additions and it now has a release date smack dab in the middle of the early-year dumping ground.

The film, which stars “Game Of Thrones” actor Kit Harington and Emily Browning as doomed lovers during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, has added “The Matrix” and “Memento” star Carrie-Anne Moss as Browning’s mother as well as “Evil Dead” victim Jessica Lucas and “Lost” castaway Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje as Browning’s slave/confidante and Harington’s fellow enslaved gladiator, respectively.

And finally, per The WrapTriStar Pictures has set the release date for the film for next year on February 28, 2014, a date which the film has all to itself for now. So prepare for yourself for all the doomed love and lava coming your way across the z-axis.
