Orlando Bloom Hits Sarajevo Film Festival

Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom announces his stepping aside from big movie productions to work in a film about life in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo during the 1992-95 siege at a meeting on Tuesday in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The film is based on the book Fools Rush In by American writer and filmmaker Bill Carter who lived in Sarajevo at the height of the siege. It will be directed by Brazilian director Andrucha Waddington.

“A film is a very specific and personal account of Bill Carter‘s experience in Sarajevo during the war and we would very much like to make the film here,” the 31-year-old actor said. “This is a departure from the very big Hollywood productions. 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.”
