French actor Vincent Cassel, who featured in "Ocean's 12", is to head to Australia soon to film a sci-fi movie starring Orlando Bloom and Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, he told AFP.
The multi-national cast, which also includes US actor John Goodman, is to appear in "The Cross" by New Zealand-born director Andrew Niccol, who made "Gattaca" and "Lord of War".
The title of the new film "is a sort of metaphor on borders in general," Cassel said during a visit to Brazil to promote a French movie festival.
He explained that Bloom was to star as a man determined to cross the frontier, while he would play the antagonist just as committed to stopping him.
Kurylenko, the Ukrainian-born actress who played in the latest James Bond flick "Quantum of Solace," incarnates their mutual love interest.
Cassel said filming would begin in the next few months.
