'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' to bring back Orlando Bloom?

Disney drops a hint that Bloom's character Will Turner could feature in the next sequel

'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' to bring back Orlando Bloom?

Orlando Bloom could be about to return to Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

The British actor starred as Will Turner - love interest of Keira Knightley's Elizabeth Swann character - in the first three swashbuckling blockbusters. However, both he and Knightley sat out the most recent instalment, 2011's On Stranger Tides.

Yesterday, the Caribbean Business news website claimed that the new Pirates film would begin filming in Puerto Rico this November (2012). Shortly afterwards, Disney dismissed the report as inaccurate and insisted that that the sequel is still "in development".

While scotching the rumours, a Disney source gave Moviehole a brief teaser of the sequel's set-up, saying: "Will Turner's story might not be finished." However, the source declined to discuss the possible involvement of Knightley's character or answer any further questions about the sequel.

Johnny Depp, who has starred in all four Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, is already on board for the fifth voyage. Last month (August), it was reported that he would earn "around £60 million" for his latest appearance as Captain Jack Sparrow. Meanwhile, Bloom has recently reprised his role as Legolas in The Hobbit, which is due for release this December (2012). Scroll down to watch the trailer.
