So, does this mean that the Bloom is off the Bond rose?

News of Bond role bewilders Orlando Bloom
HOLLYWOOD — There are plenty of pirates in Orlando Bloom’s life but no spies. British papers recently reported the Pirates of the Caribbean star was in negotiations to play a young James Bond in a series of films about the early years before Bond became 007.
“They even had me quoted as saying I was in negotiations. My cousin called to say how distraught everyone was to have to read it in the papers,” says Bloom who stars as a Crusader in Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, which opens May 6.
Bloom has been bombarded with phone calls from friends and family members over this story.
“I can assure you that I have never heard anything about such a project or an offer of any kind to play Bond from any member of my management team.
“It’s just something someone somewhere made up and posted it on the Internet.”
Bloom, 28, insists the same is true of rumours that he and longtime squeeze Kate Bosworth, 22, are once again an item.
The couple dated for two years but announced last fall they were no longer together.
In March, the two went to Brazil, fuelling speculation the affair was back on.
Some British websites have even posted stories the couple plan to wed later this year and that Bloom gave Bosworth a diamond engagement ring.
“I’m a long way from marriage at this point in my life. My career is so hectic, it’s difficult to sustain a relationship. I’m happily single at the moment,” insists Bloom.
Bosworth, who played Sandra Dee to Kevin Spacey’s Bobby Darin in Beyond the Sea, is currently filming Superman Returns, in which she plays Lois Lane to Brandon Routh’s Clark Kent.
Bloom is filming the two sequels to Pirates of the Caribbean with Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley.
