Fools Rush In

Liam Neeson and Orlando Bloom are to star in an as yet untitled movie based on the book by Bill Carter. The book tells about the period of time when Carter lived and worked as an aid worker in Sarajevo during the Balkans war siege that lasted 43 months. Javier Bardem is negotiating for a supporting role. Andrucha Waddington will direct when filming starts in Sarajevo later this year.
