Bloom on the main

03.26.2009

When legendary screenwriter and playwright Horton Foote passed away at the beginning of the month, he left behind a legacy of seminal works, including the 1962 screenplay for TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, for which he won the Academy Award.

His last screenplay MAIN STREET is moving closer towards being fully cast with the announcement that Andrew McCarthy has signed on and Orlando Bloom is all but set to join Ellen Burstyn, Patricia Clarkson and Colin Firth, who have already been cast. Producers have yet to cast the film's central role--that of a young girl.

Foote's drama revolves around a group of people in a small town in North Carolina whose lives are disturbed when a stranger arrives. Bloom will play a small-town policeman, while McCarthy will play a Lothario business manager. I love films that feature a mysterious stranger that infiltrates a small town and f*cks everyone's shit up. The film's cast is solid and with Tony award-winning director John Doyle directing, the film is on a one way express train, next stop: Qualityville.
