Orlando Bloom talks about Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:
“I’m not entirely sure that [I’ll be back] just yet, but there are talks,” he tells IGN. “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.”
Should he return, Bloom will join newcomer Brenton Thwaites along with Johnny Depp, reprising his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow, Geoffrey Rush, returning as Captain Barbossa, and Javier Bardem, debuting as the film’s villain, Captain Brand.
The film is said to see Brand as a ghost hellbent on getting revenge against Sparrow, blaming the rake for the death of his brother. No other details has been surfaced yet.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is set for a Queensland, Australia production.Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg will direct with Jerry Bruckheimer back to produce.
Release Date July 7, 2017.
