A Guy Named Orlando from chilinet.dk (Denmark), April 1, 2003
translated by Nadia
The part of
Legolas in the ”Lord Of The Rings”-trilogy has already given Orlando Bloom a few
contacts in Hollywood. This year he’s got four movies lined up and 2004 looks
No time to relax for
Orlando Bloom. Now that the companies have got their eyes on the 26-year-old
Brit, the offers are rolling in and Orlando has apparently said yes to as many
as he could squeeze into his calendar. The first movie of the year has already
opened. The movie’s called “Ned Kelly” and is about a bunch of rangers (with
Bloom and Heath Ledger in the leading roles) in Australia, that robs a bank and
keeps an entire town hostage for three days.
next movie – which has a slightly better chance of hitting the theatres here at
home – is “Pirates Of The Caribbean – Curse Of The Black Pearl”, which is about,
well, pirates. Orlando kicks ass along with Johnny Depp as the partners in
crime, who’re supposed to stop a band of blood thirsty pirates from killing the
damsel in distress and run off with the treasure. Old school pirate movie.
with a little luck we’ll get to see the comedy “Calcium Kid” before Christmas.
Bloom is the milk man Jimmy, who boxes in his spare time. A number of obscene
events leads to the fact that Jimmy is boxing against the world champion. At the
moment there’s only a confirmed UK opening at the start of October.
the movie we’re all looking the most forward to, is the third part of the “Lord
Of The Rings” –trilogy. The last movie in the series is called “Return Of the
King” and is, of course, about the final battle with Sauron. In case you have
been living under a rock for the past two years, the opening’s on December
especially the girls can already now begin to look forward to the summer of
2004, where the movie “Troy” will open. Why should you be looking forward to
this? Because the leading roles have been taken by Orlando Bloom and some guy
called Brad Pitt. Don’t think he’s that famous yet, but it will probably come.
