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.
