Orlando Bloom is the Prince of Persia
Orlando Bloom has landed the lead role in the next big budget franchise, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, according to recent reports.
Orly, 31, will rake in a reported $40 million for all three pictures. The first pic will be directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Donnie Brasco). June 2009 is the tentative release date and filming will start in Morocco.
If this is any measure of success, Bloom certainly knows how to make a successful threesome. Pirates of the Caribbean, anyone?
FYI: High School Musical hottie Zac Efron was also rumored to be in the running for the role. And remember, this casting news hasn’t been officially confirmed by legitimate news sources yet. So stay tuned!
