Charlie Hunnam is replacing Benedict Cumberbatch in Brad Pitt's The Lost City Of Z.

The Sons Of Anarchy star will play British explorer Percy Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon jungle in the 1920s.

The role was previously earmarked for Sherlock star Benedict, but it seems he was forced to drop out because of his commitments as Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie.

Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller are already on board for the big-screen adaptation of David Grann's 2009 book, which is being produced by Brad's production company, Plan B.

Twilight heartthrob Robert is thought to be playing one of Fawcett's travelling companions, while American Sniper's Sienna will star as the doomed explorer's wife.

Production is expected to start this summer.
