Erstwhile James Bond [Images] star Sir Sean Connery [Images] has signed up to star in Quest of Sheherzade, based on the legendary 1001 Arabian Nights tale, alongside Orlando Bloom [Images], according to reports.
The 78-year-old, who had turned his back on acting in recent years, has been missing from the big screen since 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
However, now the actor is back with a bang, and the news was revealed by the film's female lead, Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley [Images], who will play an Iranian princess.
'Sean Connery is there in the film and recently Orlando Bloom was also signed,' Contactmusic quoted her, as telling British publication The London [Images] Paper.
'They are planning to start the shooting from January next year,' she added.
