Bloom In Rush To Sarajevo

Orlando Bloom has confirmed that he’ll star in the film “Fools Rush In” about the 1992-95 siege in Sarajevo says Reuters.

Based on the book by American writer and filmmaker Bill Carter, it deals with Carter’s experience as an aid worker in the Bosnian capital during the 43-month-long shelling of the city by the Bosnian Serb forces.

At a press conference in Sarajevo on Tuesday, Bloomm said that “I’m not in fact playing Bill in this movie but I read the script and the very human story at the very core of this film spoke to me very clearly.” He added that “we would very much like to make the film here.”

Brazilian director Andrucha Waddington helms the feature and shooting is expected to start shooting at the end of the year.
