Orlando Bloom is reportedly being lined up to play Joe Exotic in a movie based on Netflix hit “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”.Fans of the documentary have been dying to see it turned into a movie.
According to “The Sun”, 20th Century Fox is in the early stages of planning a movie version of the shocking story. It is also said that Orlando is being lined up to play Joe, who is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for attempting to facilitate the murder of his rival Carole Baskin, who runs “Big Cat Rescue”, as well as a string of animal cruelty charges.
A movie source said that the production is on lockdown at the moment, but the project will get going as soon as possible and added: “The popularity of the series has been unprecedented and they think a film about it could be even more dramatic.
