Will Orlando Bloom return in the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’?
The actor sat down with Yaho! Movies and revealed he’s very much interested in making a return for the fifth installment of Disney’s "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, rumored to be titled "Dead Men Tell No Tales." In fact, it goes beyond interest — according to Bloom, it seems likely to happen.
“There have certainly been some discussions about it and I’m open to it,” he said. “That whole experience working with Johnny [Depp] and Gore [Verbinski] was really amazing for me. I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity was because Johnny was involved. I was such a massive fan of Johnny Depp growing up so to get up close and personal to Johnny and see how he worked as an actor was just a massive gift.”
It sounds like Bloom wants to revisit that massive gift, with a return to Bootstraps Bill Jr.’s bootstraps.
Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" is scheduled to set sail on July 7, 2017.
