Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner might be returning to the Pirates franchise after all!
It has been reported that Bloom has made comments indicating there’s been some discussion about his character returning in the new film “Dead Men Tell No Tales”, after having stayed out of the most recent instalment, 2011’s “On Stranger Tides”.
In fact, the Hobbit star has been reported to go so far as to say;
I’m open to it. That whole experience working with Johnny and Gore was really amazing for me.
Saying he’s open to it is obviously a long way from sealing a deal but we could be looking a possible returns of several original cast members at this stage with rumours of Geoffrey Rush and Jack Davenport also circulating. Johnny Depp is already officially attached to the film.
Also in Pirate news which is exciting for those of us in Australia, the fifth film has also been confirmed to be shooting in Australia! Filming will occur in Queensland to be exact, with studio filming to take place on the goldcoast and some potential location shoots to also occur somewhere in the far north of the state.
“Dead Men Tell No Tales” is targeting a 2017 release, no doubt to be included in that year’s summer season of block busters, with a script by Jeff Nathanson who also worked on Catch Me If you Can, Rush Hour 3, and Tower Heist just to mention a few.
