Date: 30th October 2003
Orlando Bloom is to star in Ridley Scott's epic 12th century love story The Kingdom Of Heaven.
Scott says Kingdom will be staged on an even greater scale than Gladiator.
Shooting begins in Morocco early next year, reports Teletext.
Bloom plays a young peasant who becomes a knight of the crusades and falls in love with the princess of Jerusalem.
The film will be the second collaboration between Bloom and director Scott, who cast the then-unknown actor in his 2001 war flick Black Hawk Down.
