(ANI): Hollywood star Orlando Bloom, 31, is planning to make a
self-starring film about the siege of Sarajevo of the early
Nineties. The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor hopes that the film
will be made in the Bosnian capital. He says that the film will be
based on U.S. writer Bill Carter''s memoir of living in the city
during the siege, 'Fools Rush In'.
"I read the script and the very human story at the very core of
this film spoke to me very clearly," the BBC quoted him as saying.
Bloom even said that he would not portray Carter in the film.
"Hopefully we can get this movie to be made at the end of this
year. To come here and shoot would be just wonderful," he said.
If the film is made, Brazilian Andrucha Waddington will be its
director, and Elliott Lewitt its producer. Meanwhile, Sarajevo''s
mayor is said to have promised financial and other support for the
film. Thousands died in the siege between 1992 and 1996, which saw
the beleaguered city suffer a constant barrage by Bosnian Serb
