Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom have joined Clive Owen and Anil Kapoor in director/writer Roger Donaldson’s (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days) next directing project, Cities, according to Variety.
Cities is described by the makers as ‘A cautionary tale about greed and ambition that takes place in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. Fortunes, both big and small are put at risk as people around the globe gamble that the financial market’s meteoric rise will continue. In New York, a hedge fund manager (Owen) has everything he wants – money, sex and power, but he wants more. In London, a young couple just want to buy their first home, but it seems impossibly out of reach. In Mumbai, a cop fights against corruption between property speculators and his villainous colleague Seth (Kapoor). These stories will all dramatically collide in a world where the fortunes of individuals are interwoven with the lives of others across the globe they have never even met.’
It isn’t known exactly how Dunst and Bloom fit into this, although Kirsten will be playing somebody called Kate. The movie will reunite Dunst and Bloom, who first appeared together in Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown in 2005, but let’s hope this new movie is a lot better than that film. Shooting on Cities is set to start in the spring.
