Orlando Bloom (“Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy) and Sally Hawkins have joined the cast of Lone Scherfig’s An Education, a coming-of-ager pic in 1960s London.
They will join Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Rosumund Pike, Emma Thompson, Olivia Williams and emerging actress Carey Mulligan (And When Did You Last See Your Father?).
Mulligan plays a witty and attractive 17-year-old, whisked off her feet by an unsuitable thirtysomething (Sarsgaard), who dazzles her with the high life.
The film was written by Nick Hornby from an article by journalist Lynn Barber.
Shooting will take place in London in March and April.
