But now Delicious is back on, Franco is out, and The Hollywood Reporter posts that Orlando Bloom (Franco's replacement) and Laura Linney are in. The film focuses on a paralyzed DJ (Thornton) trying to survive on the streets of Los Angeles when he develops the ability to cure the sick -- but only other people, not himself. He starts to cash in on his new talents, and finds himself between a Jesuit priest (Ruffalo) who tries to help him, and the lead of a "tough as nails" band (Bloom) who wants to exploit him. Linney is playing the band's manager.
Man ... Orlando Bloom as an uber-tough rock star. That is something I just can't imagine. Is Bloom a good replacement for Franco? Can Orlando pull off the "tough as nails" image? Any bets on the likelihood of "Sympathy for the Devil" being on the soundtrack? Weigh in below!
