Orlando Bloom Returning to ‘Pirates’ 5
38-year-old British actor, Orlando Bloom, is going to reprise his role of Will Turner in the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
The news was made public at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where it was announced earlier that Pixar is in production on the animated feature, Finding Dory.
According to IGN, Bloom is slated to star in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which is planned as a “soft reboot” and scheduled to hit to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
Bloom’s character, Turner, was not featured in the 2011 Pirates film, On Stranger Ties, but apparently the actor and the study have decided on Turner’s return for this latest installment.
Additionally, Johnny Depp, who famously took on the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, will also be in the film.
