Great news!

Orlando Bloom takes lead in new drama 'Romans'

10 Nov 2015 // by: Film-News.co.uk Newsdesk

Powerful drama and independent feature film, Romans, commences principal photography in West London from next week starring award winning actor Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hobbit). The four week shoot will take place in West London and will start from Monday 16th November.

Directed by The Shamassian Brothers (The Pyramid Texts) with screenplay by BAFTA award winning writer Geoff Thompson, Romans is produced by WSG Entertainment’s Sheetal Vinod Talwar as well as James Harris and Mark Lane, The Tea Shop & Film Company and Jasper Graham, Dreamscape Films. Set in present day London, Romans is based on true life events and follows the story of a middle aged man, Malky played by Orlando Bloom, still trying to come to terms with crippling insecurity, the residue of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a trusted and idolised priest. The abuse by the priest, the withdrawal of his mother’s love and abandonment of God set Malky’s life onto a twisted trajectory of violent employment, serial self-abuse and psychotic sexual jealousy. The arresting narrative follows Malky as he confronts the demons that have been haunting him for twenty years and makes the decision to forgive his abuser despite aching for violent revenge.

Producer, Sheetal Vinod Talwar said: “Romans is an incredible script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn. Orlando was the perfect choice for ‘Malky’ and will take audiences on a raw and harrowing voyage through the inner human psyche. With the Shamassian Brothers at the helm, it’s going to be a beautiful picture.”

Producer, Jasper Graham said: “I am thrilled to be working with Mr Talwar and such a talented team. This project has a powerful message that can’t be ignored and we hope to give a fresh perspective on a sensitive, topical issue.“

Producer, Mark Lane added: “"Geoff has written a moving script and we are grateful to be working with such a passionate team on what will be an undoubtedly powerful film".

Orlando Bloom represented by Independent Talent Group, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and CAA.

I went out and watched the short on YouTube. It's going to be edgy for sure.

Assuming that's maybe the reason for the facial hair (if yes, then YAY for us!), and he'll have a bit of a different look than the gentleman in the short film.

I admit that the first thing that ran through my head was please, please, PLEASE don't shave your head, Honey!!!!

I absolutely adore his hair,BUT I don't mind if he shaves it off as long as he gives us a great performance as in Zulu....everybody nows how handsome he is,now is time that EVERYBODY(and not only us and a few more) knows how talented he is.

I agree ... just would hate to see the hair go ...

This role sounds like it may just get him some much deserved attention (fingers crossed)!!!

Thanks Naz! It seems he doesn't need to shave his hair, they probably give him another look different from the short film.
