Oscar-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones is heading to New Zealand for filming on his new movie 'Emperor'.
Jones will join Lost star Matthew Fox and director Peter Webber.
He plays US General Douglas MacArthur in the film, which is set in the aftermath of the Japanese surrender in World War II. Fox plays General Bonner Fellers, a leading Japanese expert charged with deciding whether Emperor Hirohito should be tried and hanged as a war criminal.
Filming is due to start this month and the crew will also shoot in Japan.
