Bloom joins Pirates

09.04.2002

Orlando Bloom, best known for his role as Legolas in LORD OF THE RINGS (or possibly that Gap commercial where he's running down the street with Kate Beckinsale), has signed on to star alongside Johnny Depp in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. Bloom and Depp would play Will Turner and Jack Sparrow, respectively, who team to rescue the governor's daughter from the evil Blackbeard the pirate (Geoffrey Rush). The film, produced by action master Jerry Bruckheimer, is based on the popular Disney World attraction of the same name. The last film based on a popular Disney attraction, THE COUNTRY BEARS, failed miserably. The hope is that this film doesn't feature any frightening animatronic bears (although the presence of Christopher Walken couldn't hurt). Filming is scheduled to begin under the direction of Gore Verbinski (THE RING) this October.
