Former James Bond star SIR Sean Connery has reportedly come out of retirement to shoot a new film with Orlando Bloom.
The 78-year-old has turned his back on acting in recent years and has not appeared on the big screen since 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
But now Connery is said to have signed up to star in Quest of Sheherzade, based on the legendary 1001 Arabian Nights tale, alongside fellow Brit Bloom.
The news was revealed by the film's female lead, Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley, who will play an Iranian princess.
She tells British publication The London Paper, "Sean Connery is there in the film and recently Orlando Bloom was also signed. They are planning to start the shooting from January next year."
