Heartbeat, why do you skip? However big their American stars, almost every epic film needs one special X-factor to help ensure box-office allure. One of those? An irresistible British leading lady, of course. Bodacious Mr Brad Pitt has already signed up to star as Achilles in Troy , Mr Wolfgang Petersen's forthcoming adaptation of Homer's The Iliad. Beefy Mr Eric Bana will occupy Hector's house. But the febrile cinematic world is still alive with excitement. Who on earth is to play minxy Helen of Troy when filming begins later this year? 'Wolfgang's poised to secure Saffron Burrows,' confides our fly-on-the-wall above the Warner Brothers' casting-couch. 'She's stunning. And she's got all the elan that gives a movie true class.' Could anyone who saw scrumptious Saffron in Timecode or Deep Blue Sea possibly disagree?

this is what the orlando bloom fans message board has as the confirmed cast list:

Orlando Bloom .... Paris
Eric Bana .... Hector, Prince of Troy
Brad Pitt .... Achilles
Sean Bean .... Odysseus
Peter O'Toole ....Priam
Saffron Burrows ....Andromache
Brendan Gleeson .... Menelaos
Brian Cox .... Agamemnon
Julie Christie .... Thetis

im excited for this movie im sure whoever helen is it will be good. its so hard to chose someone since everyones idea of beauty is so diff, so hopefully whoever it is will be pretty but also a good actress.(and hopefully married lol just kidding!!!) :P

She looks real pretty (too pretty, in fact, I better blind-fold Orli if he's going to work with her...lol, just kidding........or am I?). <_< :huh: ;) :lol: :D :P

Anyways, I can definitely see the elegance that Petersen is talking about.

According to columnists Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith, via Coming Soon, the search is on for the right actress to play the female lead of "Helen" in director Wolfgang Petersen's forthcoming epic, Troy. Brad Pitt and Eric Bana will star (as "Achilles" and "Hector", respectively) in the Warner Brothers project. Production will commence this spring in London, Morocco and Malta. The screenplay by David Benioff reportedly draws liberally from Homer's The Iliad.

so, they have no helen!

Now is that what they say? Because they could still have her, she just prolly wont have any speaking parts in it, you know like just a prerunner for background info of the story. (like what they did in LOTR)

do you mean helen wont have any lines??? i doubt it. im pretty sure she will have a decent amount of screen time and lines since she is a pretty big part of this war. besides i dont think they would not have scenes with orlando and her together to steam it up :P plus they probably wanna put as much of her in it as possible since there will so many guys they need a woman to make it more marketable. im thinking they either really dont have a helen yet(which sucks cuz i hope they dont just pick anyone since filming starts soon), or they have someone but want to keep it secret as long as they can to build interest in the movie. :D
