As recent news claimed that Pixar and Warner Bros have been eyeing Pompeii ruins to be a set for their film project, many speculated that Brad Bird's film may see the place as the filming location.

As an article in Newsweek noted that Pixar is more likely to rent the famous ruins of Pompeii to be a film set came out, many speculated that the film intended to be shot there may have been Warner Bros. Pictures' latest movie project "". However, further reports suggested that the earlier rumors maybe a false one after all.

On the speculation, Slash Film noted that The Pixar Blog has pointed out that the Brad Bird-directed film probably won't need the filming of the famous site near Naples, Italy as the film, though is set in the early 20th century, tells the story of the eminent earthquake occurred in San Fransisco, California. Further, Slash also explained that the James Dalessandroonce's book from which the film is adapted never mentions the location.

Helmed and penned by "" writer/director, "1906" follows a college student who investigates his father's murder and led him to discover a series of lies that left San Fransisco defenseless to the fire that engulfed the city after the Great Earthquake in 1906. Additionally, when the filming of the action adventure movie for Warner Bros. Pictures will be started has yet to be announced.
