Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker star in 'Zulu'
Issued on: Modified:
Drugs, crime, and the shadow of apartheid hang heavy over Jérôme Salle’s new film "Zulu". It’s the tale of two Cape Town cops, played by Forest Whitaker and Orlando Bloom, battling violent crime, a sinister conspiracy, and their own personal demons.
The director joins us on the show, along with Caryl Férey, who wrote the original book on which the screenplay was based.
They tell us how two Frenchmen came to make a movie about South Africa, and why they think Orlando Bloom makes a good tough guy, despite his usual on-screen Prince Charming persona.
