'Lola Versus': Greta Gerwig, Orlando Bloom Set To Star In New Romantic Comedy

Is Greta Gerwig America's New Sweetheart?

Call her America's sweetheart. Or secret weapon. Having won the heart of one British leading man, Greta Gerwig is in talks to co-star in a romantic comedy with another England export.

Gerwig, coming off her turn as Russell Brand's love interest in "Arthur," will star in "Lola Versus," a romantic comedy about a bride-to-be who gets dumped by her fiance just weeks before her wedding, Variety reports, with Orlando Bloom in talks for an undisclosed role. Whether he takes on the offending fiance or eventual love interest remains to be seen, but either way, Gerwig will have worked her charm on the Brit.

The film will be Gerwig's first major leading role; in 2010, she gained major notice with her co-star turn opposite Ben Stiller in "Greenberg," an indie romantic dramedy, and earlier this year, had a small part in "No Strings Attached." The success comes after years of work in the world of micro-budget indie films, including "Baghead" and "Hannah Takes The Stairs."

Bloom is now featuring two new indie films, "The Good Doctor," and the Mark Ruffalo directorial debut, "Sympathy for Delicious," in which he plays a northern English rocker.
