Orlando Bloom, Olga Kurylenko and Vincent Cassel have all signed on to near-future thriller The Cross.
After a quiet period in his career, it would seem that Bloom is gearing things back up again – he’s got several films lined up and clearly feels that a futuristic drama is the way to break out of that Pirates stereotyping.
And it’s something of a comeback also for writer/director Andrew Niccol, who hasn’t made a film since 2005’s Lord Of War.
Bloom, Kurylenko and Kassel will star in the tale of a man who has a mission: he desperately needs to cross a mysterious border. Where is he escaping? Why? Where is he going? We don’t know yet.
We do, however know that Niccol plans to start shooting in Australia this July and has $24 million to spend.
