Orlando Bloom back for Pirates 5?

September 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on the way with Johnny Depp obviously back, along will Keith Richards and Geoffrey Rush — and possibly even Penelope Cruz. But will Orlando Bloom be making a return too?

“There have certainly been some discussions about it and I’m open to it,” Bloom said at an Australian Comic-Con.  “That whole experience working with Johnny (Depp) and (director) Gore (Verbinski) was really amazing for me,” Bloom admitted.  “I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity (to be in the first Pirates) 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.”

After his absence from the last movie which was poorly received, perhaps the studio are keen on getting the original cast back.  Could Kiera Knightly be approached to reprise her role too?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail on July 7, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
