Orlando Bloom Open to 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Return

While doing press for his upcoming action-adventure reboot The Three Musketeers, Orlando Bloom put the word out that he wouldn’t rule out a return to the lucrative Disney franchise.

Bloom had passed on the fourth Pirates movie to spend time with his girlfriend, now wife, Miranda Kerr.  At the time, Bloom had said that he was happy to move on from the franchise and that the third movie had wrapped up his character’s storyline.
Fast forward four years as the fourth Pirates movie grosses over $1 billion worldwide and proves the franchise is still very strong, especially in international markets.
Bloom expressed regret in not being in the fourth movie, saying, "I was quite sad not to be in the fourth and I really miss working on them. If they said they wanted me back, of course I’d do it. It’s great to see the franchise still doing so well."
It’s not as though Bloom really needs the work, especially with the royalty checks coming in from two multi-billion-dollar franchises (Pirates and Lord of the Rings) as well as a return as Legolas in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Since his last Pirates movie in 2007, Bloom has starred in a series of indie films ranging from the Mark Ruffalo-directed Sympathy for Delicious and the dramatic thriller The Good Doctor.
A script for a fifth Pirates movie was turned in a couple months ago, so we know Disney is moving forward with continuing the series. Would you want Will Turner to return to the Pirates franchise?
