Orlando to Make London Stage Debut
: Reaping success after success with big screen features, Orlando Bloom is
invading the London stage. The actor, famous for his role in "Pirates" flicks,
will star in a revival of David Storey's "In Celebration." The play,
which is a 1969 drama, tells the story of three brothers who are unhappy as they
have to travel back to their parents' Yorkshire home for their 40th wedding
anniversary. Once there, tension immediately begins to mount between the three
brothers until one of them begins angrily lashing out at the rest of the family,
tearing apart their illusion of happiness. "In Celebration" will be
directed by Anna Mackmin and produced by Sonia Friedman. No dates, theater or
additional casting have been announced, although Variety speculates that a July
opening at Trafalgar Studios is likely.
Pirates Release Date Moved Up
From slashfilm.com: Our Disney sources have
confirmed with us that Pirates of the Caribbean: At
World’s End has been moved up for a Thursday night release. The film was
originally scheduled to hit theaters on Friday, May 25th (on
Midnight in select market theaters) but will now be released one night earlier.
Screenings will begin at 8:00pm on May 24th. Pirates will now
have more than four days to make a huge slam at the box office (considering
Monday is Memorial Day).
Orlando Hugs Stalker
Orlando Bloom hugged an angry stalker who broke into his hotel room. A woman recently managed to gain entry to the "Pirates Of The Caribbean"
star's room, but instead of being scared or angry, quick-thinking Orlando calmly
He told Gotham magazine: "To be honest, I don't want to share this with you
because if I were that person reading this, I'd feel so embarrassed.
She got kind of aggressive with me and was really angry. She was like, 'I've
been at every premiere and you never say hello.' And it was funny, I felt really
upset. I felt bad for her. So I turned around and went over to her and just gave
her a hug and said, 'It's cool. I'm sorry you feel let down or disappointed. But
the nature of my life is I can't necessarily stop every time, and it's not
because I don't want to.' I think she felt a little better afterwards, and so did I. And for me, it
actually shed a little light on the other side of the coin."

forces in play to make it happen, and forces in play to make it not happen. I
think we will try to write a screenplay. I can't say if we'll be able to solve
the challenge of making a good fourth film, or if our screenplay will be enough
to get a film made.
