Bloom, Cassel, Kurylenko Are “Cross”

Orlando Bloom (“Pirates of the Caribbean”), Vincent Cassel (“Eastern Promises,” “Ocean’s 12”) and Olga Kurylenko (“Quantum of Solace,” “Hitman”) are set to star in the Australia-France-Germany co-production “The Cross” reports Variety.

Set against the backdrop of a futuristic border town, Bloom plays a man seeking to cross a mysterious border, something no one else has achieved.

Cassel, meanwhile, is the guard who will go to any lengths to foil him. Kurylenko takes the female lead.

Andrew Niccol (“Lord of War,” “Gattaca”) helms the $24 million production which begins filming this July in Australia.

Wieland Schulz-Keil, Jonathan Shteinman, Jean-Vincent Puzos, Remi Burah and Niccol will produce.
