Amazon Studios Announces New First Look Deal With Orlando Bloom
Amazon Studios today announced it has signed a new first look deal with acclaimed actor Orlando Bloom. As part of the deal, Bloom will work with Amazon Studios to create television and film projects that will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Jen Salke and the team at Amazon and I look forward to growing that relationship with this new and exciting production deal,” said Bloom.
“Orlando is a fantastic creative talent and collaborative partner for all of us at studios”, said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to continue working with Orlando not only on Carnival Row, but on the future projects for our Prime Video customers.”
Bloom can currently be seen starring in the Amazon Original hit series Carnival Row, alongside Cara Delevingne, which premiered in 2019 on Prime Video. Widely known for his roles as “Legolas” in Peter Jackson’s Academy Award-winning Trilogy The Lord of the Rings, and as “Will Turner” in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Orlando Bloom is one of the most popular working actors in the world.
In the summer of 2018, Bloom led a 13-week limited run of Tracy Letts’ black comedy thriller Killer Joe at Trafalgar Studios in London’s West End. He recently wrapped production on two films, the first being the John Ridley-directed Needle in a Timestack opposite Freida Pinto and Leslie Odom, Jr. The movie follows a couple struggling to hold their marriage together in a world where time travel is possible, and the past and present are ever fluctuating. He also completed The Outpost, directed by Rod Lurie and produced by Jake Tapper. The film chronicles the true story of 53 US soldiers who battled a force of 400 enemy insurgents in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom, and also stars Scott Eastwood and Caleb Landry Jones.
Orlando Bloom ’s other film credits include: Michael Apted’s Unlocked; Paul Shammasian’s Romans; Jake Szymanski’s Tour de Pharmacy for HBO; Jeremy Salle’s Zulu, which premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival; Joe Swanberg’s Digging for Fire; Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down and Kingdom of Heaven; Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown; Gregor Jordan’s Ned Kelly; Wolfgang Peterson’s Troy; Alex De Rakoff’s The Calcium Kid; Frank E. Flowers’ Haven; Mark Ruffalo’s Sympathy for Delicious; John Doyle’s Main Street; Lance Daly’s The Good Doctor, which he also produced; and Paul W.S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers.
Aside from his successful acting career, Bloom has been an avid supporter of UNICEF since 2007 and was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2009. He was presented with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award at the 2015 UNICEF Snowflake Ball, in recognition of his commitment to the rights of children around the world. Bloom was also honored with the 2015 BAFTA Britannia Humanitarian Award. In addition, Bloom received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2014 and was honored at the 41st Deauville Film Festival in 2015.
