Orlando Bloom is the latest actor to be linked to a Joe Exotic project.

According to BangShowbiz, the Lord of the Rings actor is at the top of the shortlist to play the eccentric zoo owner, who was the subject of the Netflix docu-series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.

20th Century Pictures is reportedly planning a movie following the success of the documentary.

This isn't the only Hollywood remake in the works.

Comedian Kate McKinnon will play animal rights activist Carole Baskin in a mini-series based on the ongoing rivalry between Joe, Carole and other players in the big cat community.

As for who the Tiger King thinks should play him, well, Brad Pitt is at the top of his list
