So if you are not aware, actor Orlando Bloom is in South Africa and by the looks of things he’s been rather chilled and mixing with folks in Cape Town like a local. Several people spotted him walking up Lions Head, in the Woolies in Kloof Street and on Camps Bay beach over the weekend.
I told you back in March HERE that he would be coming to Cape Town to film a new movie called Zulu where he will be playing an SA policeman.
Here he is spotted by Kgomotso Mokoena on the plane headed into Cape Town.
Saw him on Camps Bay beach, but didn’t wanna be that dork who takes a pic. I’m sure over the coming weeks though you folks are gonna snap him out and about in the city.
If you do manage to take a pic then send it hey.
Anyways…if he is filming the movie Zulu along with Djimon Honsou then here’s the synopsis.
“As a child, Ali Neuman (Honsou) narrowly escaped being murdered by Inkhata, a militant political party at war with Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress. Only he and his mother survived the carnage of those years. But as with many survivors, the psychological scars remain. Today, Ali is chief of the homicide branch of the South African police in Cape Town. One of his staff is Brian Epkeen( Bloom), a free-wheeling white officer whose family was originally involved in the establishment of apartheid but who works well with Neuman. Together they have to deal with crime that inevitably exists in sprawling areas of un -and under- employed people, crime exacerbated by gangs, both local and from other parts of Africa. Their job gets even more difficult when the corpses of two young women are found. A new evil has been introduced in the city and a new drug has been introduced to its residents, including both murder victims. At the chaotic crossroads where brutality and modernization collide, the echoes of apartheid still resound in the shadows of a society struggling toward reconciliation.”
Orly with a South African accent…should be interesting.
