Orlando Bloom Won't Be In The Next Pirates of the Caribbean

It appears that no-one has told Orlando Bloom about keeping the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise going for a fourth installment, adding to speculation that Bloom won't be signed to continue his role.

Disney are as keen as mustard to do it, and Johnny Depp is telling anyone who’ll listen that he’d like to reprise his part of ’Cap’n Jack’.

Bloom has been quoted by imdb.com as saying “they haven't said anything to me...so I guess I'm not coming back”.

Bloom may only be half-joking. Rumours have been rife since last year that Disney wants to cut costs if they’re to keep making the series, with Bloom being seen as the most expendable cast member.

Kiera Knightley and Depp are both seen as vital to the success of the films, however Bloom - who plays the hero – may be seen as surplus to requirements.

The first Pirates of the Caribbean was great in every way, the best part of the other two was the special effects… the question now is, if they come out with a fourth, will it maintain the quality of the first?
