For better or worse, the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise shall continue. Also for better or worse, Orlando Bloom seems to have learned that audiences only seem to like him in periodpictures. Something about Bloom in a t-shirt and jeans doesn’t resonate with audiences. Now, put him in a puffy shirt, or throw a bow and arrow on him, and everything is right as rain. The British thesp may have realized this, and is now said to be considering a return to the high seas of the Pirates series.

“There have certainly been some discussions about it and I’m open to it. That whole experience working with Johnny and (director) 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.”

Those comments were spoken by Bloom, himself, at an Oz Comic-Con. The film in question would be Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It’s set to arrive on our shores on July 7, 2017, under the direction of two new captains: Co-directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.

What do you think? Excited to see the potential return of Will Turner? Or have you checked out of this one completely?
