Orlando Bloom and Greta Gerwig to Star in Lola Versus

Orlando Bloom to Romance, Dump Greta Gerwig

Here's a couple I wasn't expecting to see as an onscreen pair: Orlando Bloom and Greta Gerwig are set to star in romantic comedy Lola Versus. Gerwig will play a woman whose fiancé (Bloom) dumps her right before their wedding, and she then embarks on an attempt to figure out who she is as a single woman before she reaches 30.

Zoe Lister Jones and Daryl Wein cowrote the screenplay, and are the same pair who wrote and starred in the bittersweet indie Breaking Upwards. Jones will also costar while Wein will direct.

Gerwig broke out in last year's indie Greenberg, but between Arthur and this new project, it sounds like she's ready to stick around the romantic comedy realm. With costars like Russell Brand and Orlando Bloom, I can't say I blame her.
