Does ‘Lola Versus’ Have Orlando Bloom’s Bow?

Orlando Bloom has Hobbit movies to make, but I guess Legolas doesn’t have too big a role, because he might wedge a terrible sounding romantic comedy into his schedule.

Bloom may star alongside Greta Gerwig (Arthur) in Fox Searchlight‘s Lola Versus, directed by Daryl Wein, written by Wein & Zoe Lister-Jones, and Jones who will co-star. One of the perks of writing the script is penning a part and being like, “hmm, you know who’d be great for this? …Me.

The romantic comedy is about a girl who gets dumped at the alter by her college sweetheart, then goes on a journey as a single woman. The ticking clock is: she’s about to turn 30. I can hear you gasping through the internet. Maybe Bloom will play the guy who helps her on her journey, and turns out to be “the one.” That’s a twist you’d never see coming. Or, you know, the opposite of that.

In June, the production team hopes to begin shooting in New York. (Variety)
