Is Pirates 5 a Reboot?

December 16th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments



So the Pirates of the Caribbean has been going on for a while now…some may say too long. But that’s not stopping the team behind it from making another film. After all, the last one made over 1 Billion dollars at the box office.

Rumors have been swirling that Orlando Bloom would return to the franchise in the fifth installment: Dead Men Tell No Tales. In a recent interview, Bloom spoke on the matter.

“I’m not entirely sure that [I’ll be back] just yet, but there are talks,” he relays. “Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son… I’m of course Davey Jones now, so I’m down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I’m rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won’t look anything like me. [Gestures to face] Get all gnarly.”

Interesting. What do you think? Dead Man Tell No Tales is set to hit theaters July 7, 2017
