from comingsoon.net http://comingsoon.net/news.php?id=1736 Ridley Scott (Gladiator) and 20th Century Fox are preparing the Crusades-era epic Kingdom of Heaven for a January production start in Morocco. The film will be Scott's next directorial effort and the first since he and brother Tony set their Scott Free banner to an overall Fox deal. Scott will also produce the William Monahan-scripted film. Set in the 12th century, the drama focuses on a young blacksmith who becomes a knight and helps defend Jerusalem against the Crusaders. There is also a love story, as the young knight falls in love with a princess. Scott is actively casting and word is that "Lord of the Rings" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Orlando Bloom is atop the list. sounds GREAT!
