Orlando Bloom Not Returning to Pirates 4

Disney is going to have to find themselves a new swashbuckler! We’d heard the rumors before, but now it’s confirmed that Orlando Bloom will not be returning as Will Turner for Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

During the Sundance Film Festival, Orlando talked with MTV News. When they asked if was going to be a part of the fourth installment, he replied, “No, definitely not.”

But it’s a movie franchise Bloom will certainly miss. "I had a great time making those movies," he said. "I just really wanted to do different things, but I think it's going to be great. Whatever Johnny does, I think it's fantastic."

Orlando also had great things to say about director Rob Marshall, who is helming the next Pirates. "I think he's an amazing director," Bloom said of Marshall. "I think it will be a very interesting fit, because Johnny is musical anyway and I'm sure that something really beautiful will come out of it."

We don’t blame him for pulling out. Orlando is a great actor and we know he’ll be moving on to bigger and better things!
