Orlando Bloom & Co. Hooked on The Cross

ON

Variety reports Orlando Bloom, Vincent Cassel (Eastern Promises) and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) are starring in The Cross for director Andrew Niccol (Lord of War).

Set against the backdrop of a futuristic border town, Bloom plays a man seeking to cross a mysterious border, something no one else has achieved. Cassel, meanwhile, is the guard who will go to any lengths to foil him. Kurylenko takes the female lead.

Pre-production has begun on the $24 million sci-fi escape story, which is scheduled to start principal photography in July in Australia.
