British actor ORLANDO BLOOM has upset movie bosses on his latest film AN
EDUCATION – after he pulled out of the project just days before it began
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star was signed to star in the film – which was
penned by oft-adapted British novelist Nick Hornby – but had to cancel because
of last minute schedule clashes.
The 30-year-old hunk has been replaced by Dominic Cooper – a relative unknown
British actor who starred in the 2006 big screen adaptation of Alan Bennett’s
play The History Boys.
Producers had to act quickly to find a replacement for Bloom after shooting
began last week on the movie (begs10Mar08).
Cooper will play a thirtysomething playboy in the coming-of-age drama who
turns the life of a 17-year-old girl upside down in early-1960s London.
He joins a cast boasting a host of beloved British actors, including Emma
Thompson, Peter Sarsgaard, Carey Mulligan, Alfred Molina and Rosamund Pike.
