Orlando Bloom Joins Musketeers

Orlando Bloom takes a break from filming some scenes for a new movie by the London Tower Bridge on Tuesday (May 25) in London.

Recently it was confirmed that the 33-year-old actor will be joining British comedian James Corden for the 3D version of The Three Musketeers.

As expected, Orly will play the villain, Duke of Buckingham, while James will play his servant, Planchet, in the classic tale. Production begins in the fall and the film is expected to be released in the summer of 2011.

    Sounds neat. I don’t really care for the 3-D though…gives me headaches. But who doesn’t like a good musketeer story? Can’t wait!

  • Sighs4l

    Uhhh…lazy journalism strikes again.
    The Duke of Buckingham is NOT the villain…
    Planchet is the servant to D’Artagnan.

    You go with your gorgeous self, OB. Always good to see you smile.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l…

    …when’s the last time he was in a movie?!?

  • Alaia

    James Corden is a twat.

  • Alice

    The Duke of Buckingham in the original book and all subsequent movie remakes was not the villain. He was the secret lover of the Queen of France.
    France and England were enemies at that time, so he could be considered an enemy of France, but not the villain of the story.

    Just sayin

  • wow!

    Such a gorgeous speciman of a man!

  • burnt bacon

    HellOOOOOOO, Sailor! Looking pretty good. I think the anti-neckbeard vibes worked. He’s really been on a roll with movie-making this year and last. I guess the “his career is over” gang needs to assume the position.

  • citylove

    Thanks JJ !

    But Buckingham is not bad at all ! Planchet is not his servant at all ! Planchet is d’Artagnan’s servant.

    Orlando looks hot !

  • ?

  • Melody

    I’d like to run my fingers through that hair! Wow, I didn’t even know he’d left the US till I saw this…he was just in LA, what, two or three days ago? I said it before, I’ll say it again, England’s got most of the hunks….wish men looked like that in my state!

  • Jayne

    And Orlando is one hot HUNK @ Melody i wish men look like that were i live.

  • DL

    (Cringe.) This story is a lot like ‘Robin Hood’ — been done and redone too many times. Rather see him do something a little more novel than just another rehash of a tale done umpteen times already.
