Jude enjoys Florida sun

23 Jan 2008

Jude Law has opted to spend his January in the sunny climes of Florida, far away from the cold and rainy UK.

The actor relaxed on a white sandy beach in the Sunshine State, reading a book and listening to the radio, according to Hello! magazine.

While it appeared that the Sleuth star was taking some time off, he was in fact boning up before beginning shooting his new film Repossession Mambo by reading the novel on which the movie will be based.

Jude will play the central character in the futuristic tale, a man who has purchased an artificial heart but is pursued by repossession agents who want to take the organ back.

The sci-fi movie will also star Liev Schreiber, who appeared in The Manchurian Candidate, and Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker.

Florida is one of the United States' major hotspots in tourism terms, largely owing to its theme parks and attractions.

The city of Orlando is a magnet for many families travelling to the Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando.ADNFCR-408-ID-18438880-ADNFCR
