Bloom gets Education

02.21.2008
Growing up I was bombarded with the importance of getting an education. It will lead to intelligence, they told meóto an important job and a respectable position within society. All itís led to is a debt I canít payoff and a depression I canít shake. I hope the actors in the upcoming film THE EDUCATION will fare better than I. Peter Sarsgaard, Orlando Bloom, Rosamund Pike, Emma Thompson, Alfred Molina, Olivia Williams, and newcomer Carey Mulligan have all signed on to star in the film, to be directed by Lone Scherfig.

In the pic, Mulligan plays an attractive 17-year-old (is there any other kind?) who gets swept up into a whirlwind life by a dashing yet dangerous Brit (Sarsgaard, in full-on accent mode) who charms her with fancy club/lounges, expensive trips, and Iím guessing, some blow. Molina will play her father, who sees his daughterís bright future slipping away. The film was written by novelist Nick Hornby, who penned such gems as ABOUT A BOY and HIGH FIDELITYóthe books, not the scripts.

Extra Tidbit: The film will be set in the swingin' sixties of Austin Powers-era London.
