Orlando Bloom is in Sarajevo at the moment, talking to officials about the recently announced filmic adaptation of Bill Carter's memoir Fools Rush In. The book is about Bill's experiences living and working as an aid worker in Sarajevo during the Balkans war siege. Orlando is co-producing and will star in the movie – although not as Bill Carter – Liam Neeson will also star and Javier Bardem is in talks for a supporting role. Orlando spoke to reporters in Sarajevo, saying:
"I read the script, and the very human story and the very core of this film spoke to me very clearly. This is a departure from the very big Hollywood productions."
Sounds like a great cast is coming together, and the film will be adapted from some fascinating material. Orlando and co hope to start shooting at the end of the year.
