Orlando Bloom Hits Sarajevo Film Festival

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.”

    Lets hope they hire ACTUAL BOSNIANS, SERBS & CROATS for this Im sure to be masterpiece, instead of a couple of desperate for work russian & polish actors with bad slavic accents. Oh who am I kidding? everyone will be some crappy American “A” lister who will emote & grimace waaaay too much. Hayden Pantyairs as a traumitized bosnian refugee & Tom cruise as an “evil” nazi Serb, why not? Goddamn…

    “Welcome to Sarajevo” was amazing, so I’m looking forward to this movie. It’s something that people need to be aware of. If we don’t know this world’s history, we’re bound to repeat it. Over and over and over.

    Many of the articles about his trip have mentioned their desire to hire local actors. Most specifically those who went through the war themselves.
    This is a wonderful project.
    If you can be proud of a total stranger, I’m proud of HIM.

    It’s so refreshing to see a young Hollywood star use his celebrity and clout to get a small, important film like this made. If he’s a producer, that means that he is investing his own money in this film. Doing something socially relevant with his millions, instead of blowing it on booze and drugs. Hollywood might want to deport him for setting a bad example for the Lohans of the world.

    Altruistic and incredibly hot, what a great combination.
