Orlando Bloom is in negotiations to join the ensemble drama “Main Street”, based on the final screenplay of the late playwright Horton Foote says The Hollywood Reporter.
Foote’s drama centers on a group of people in a small town in North Carolina whose lives are shaken up when a stranger arrives. Bloom will play a small-town policeman.
Ellen Burstyn, Patricia Clarkson, Colin Firth and Andrew McCarthy also star, the later as a sleazy business manager. The lead young female role has yet to be cast.
Shooting kicks off in Durham, North Carolina next month under the helm of John Doyle.
