An exclusive report from Variety announces that Greta Gerwig (“Arthur”) is set to star in Fox’s romcom “Lola Versus“. Meanwhile, Orlando Bloom is close to sealing a deal to star alongside Gerwig.

“Lola Versus” tells the story of a young woman (Gerwig) who is dumped by her college sweetheart a mere few weeks before they are set to wed. The break-up results in a journey of self discovery for Gerwig’s character as she struggles to find her place as an independent woman before she turns 30. All in all, it sounds like your typical soul-searching chick flick. No specific details yet on what role Bloom is in talks to play, whether he’s the runaway fiancé or the new guy who will undoubtedly help her on her quest.

Daryl Wein will direct the film, with a screenplay written by Wein & Zoe Lister-Jones. Jones will also co-star in the film. Production is scheduled to start in June in New York.

AROUND THE WEB

Lindsey prefers novels over films, but given that there are so many book-to-movie adaptations, these days she finds her eyes glued to the screen almost as much as the page. She majored in English and minored in Book/Media and Music History at the University of Toronto. Her favourite movie is Star Wars, but please don’t ask her about anything that isn’t the original trilogy as that is still a sensitive subject in her life.
