Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom have have just signed on to appear together in the international thriller Cities. They join the previously-announced Clive Owen and Anil Kapoor in the new project from writer/director Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, 13 Days).
The film is set to go before cameras in Spring 2012 and will shoot in multiple cities that will include London, Mumbai and New York. The official description is as follows:
"Cities" is a cautionary tale about greed and ambition that takes place in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. Fortunes, both big and small are put at risk as people around the globe gamble that the financial market’s meteoric rise will continue. In New York, a hedge fund manager (Owen) has everything he wants – money, sex and power, but he wants more. In London, a young couple just want to buy their first home, but it seems impossibly out of reach. In Mumbai, a cop fights against corruption between property speculators and his villainous colleague Seth (Kapoor). These stories will all dramatically collide in a world where the fortunes of individuals are interwoven with the lives of others across the globe they have never even met.
The international thriller is being produced by Matthew Metcalfe (Dean Spanley, Love Birds) and Chris Curling (Hannibal Rising, The Last Station). Julie Christie, Eyeworks New Zealand CEO, will executive produce alongside Eyeworks New Zealand who will partner on the production.
