Screen Daily reported this morning with great glee that Orlando Bloom is going to be appearing in a movie with ... his real-life girlfriend! Can you stand it? For some reason they're very excited about the relationship between Mr. Bloom and Kate Bosworth, with whom he has agreed to appear in Seasons of Dust, an indie drama written and directed by actor Tim Blake Nelson, and produced by the Coen brothers.

The movie is set during the Depression, and tells the story of "a young farm woman forced to go on the run." Bosworth, who will play the central character, read the script shortly after she and Nelson finished their work on Wonderland back in 2003 and, she says, immediately fell in love with it: "It's a woman's journey during the Depression and it's one of the most beautiful scripts I've ever read." Bloom's involvement came about more recently; he'll play "a cowboy who steals from bootleggers" who he describes as "a really charismatic character, a real cowboy who loves to be loved by women." You go with your bad, being loved by women self, Orlando.

Production is expected to begin this summer.
