Orlando Bloom Drops Out of Education
March 17, 2008

Orlando Bloom has pulled out of Lone Scherfig's An Education because of scheduling clashes just as the movie begins rolling, the producers said Monday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bloom exits the movie and is replaced by Dominic Cooper (The History Boys) in the movie written by oft-adapted British novelist Nick Hornby.

Producers have moved quickly to replace Bloom on the picture, which began shooting Monday and will be in front of the cameras until May on location in and around London, Oxford and Paris.

Cooper joins a cast already boasting Peter Sarsgaard, Carey Mulligan, Alfred Molina, Rosamund Pike, Olivia Williams, Sally Hawkins and Emma Thompson.

Also signing up for director Scherfig's latest is Cara Seymour, whose credits include The Savages, Hotel Rwanda and Adaptation.

Scherfig (Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself) directs from Hornby's script based on a piece of memoir by British journalist Lynn Barber.

Billed as a teenage girl's coming-of-age drama set in early 1960s London, the story centers on a 17-year-old girl whose suburban life is about to be blown apart by the arrival of a 30-something playboy.

That's really too bad.
