Orlando Bloom and Djimon Hounsou have joined director Jérôme Salle's cop drama, Zulu

The two actors will play two Cape Town police officers who investigate the murder of a 18 year-old girl, the daughter of a member of the championship winning Sprikboks rugby team, a job that ultimately reveals ties to the country's apartheid past.

The film is based on a novel by Caryl Férey.

Production for the film begins in the summer.
