Orlando Bloom, Vincent Cassel and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) will star in The Cross, a sci-fi escape movie to be directed by Andrew Niccol (Lord of War), Variety reported.

Niccol has initiated preproduction on the $24 million movie, which is scheduled to start principal photography in July in Australia, the trade paper reported.

Set in a border town, Cross returns Niccol to his favorite domain: the near future. Bloom plays a man seeking to cross a mysterious border, something no one else has achieved; Cassel is the guard who will go to any lengths to foil him. Kurylenko takes the female lead.
