Liam Neeson will star in and Javier Bardem is in talks for a supporting role in the film adaptation of Bill Carter’s book “Fools Rush In” says Variety.
Carter wrote the book about the period of time when he lived and worked as an aid worker in Sarajevo during the bitter Balkans war siege that lasted 43 months.
Orlando Bloom announced his intention to co-produce and star in a supporting role in the project on Tuesday. Elliott Lewitt and Julie Kirkham will also produce.
Brazilian helmer Andrucha Waddington (“Me You Them”) will direct and shooting will begin in Sarajevo at the end of the year.
