Bloom, Molina, Hawkins join ‘Education’

Scherfig pic shoots in London

Orlando Bloom, Alfred Molina and Sally Hawkins, who won a Silver Bear in Berlin for “Happy-Go-Lucky,” have joined the cast of Lone Scherfig’s “An Education,” a coming-of-ager set in 1960s London.

Trio join Peter Sarsgaard, Rosumund Pike, Emma Thompson, Olivia Williams and emerging thesp Carey Mulligan (“And When Did You Last See Your Father?”).

Mulligan plays a witty and attractive 17-year-old, whisked off her feet by an unsuitable thirtysomething (Sarsgaard), who dazzles her with the high life.

Pic is scripted by Nick Hornby from an article by journalist Lynn Barber.

Endgame Entertainment and BBC Films developed and are financing the pic, which is produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey.

Endgame’s James D. Stern, Douglas E. Hansen and Wendy Japhet, and David M. Thompson for BBC Films executive produce.

The film will shoot in London in March and April.

Odyssey Entertainment is handling worldwide sales.
