The Netflix original documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness caused a wave on the internet last week. Now, there are reports that Orlando Bloom might play Joe Exotic in an upcoming film based on the documentary.

Although production hasn’t kicked off just yet due to COVID-19, 20th Century Studios are already in the early stages of planning the film. According to The Sun, Bloom is supposedly in talks with producers to take the lead role.

An inside source told The Sun, “All filming is on lockdown at the moment but the studios are exploring projects they can get going on as soon as possible and they think Tiger King is the perfect story.”

Last week, Bloom posted a photo of his and his dog’s heads photoshoppers into a photo of Exotic playing with a tiger, causing more rumours to spur.
