Bloom Pulls Out Of Nick Hornby Film
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 shooting. 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 The 30-year-old hunk has been replaced by Dominic Cooper - a relative unknown British actor who starred in the 2006 big screen adaptation of Alan Bennett's play The History Boys.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.
