Bloom 'has talks' for Pirates 5

Orlando Bloom has teased that there is still a chance he will return to the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

The British heartthrob appeared alongside Johnny Depp as blacksmith-turned-pirate Will Turner in the first three movies, but he wasn't thought to be returning for upcoming fifth film Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

However, Orlando has now told IGN that he's had "talks", so it seems the ship might not be setting sail without him after all.

"I'm not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet but there are talks," he said.

"Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son."

He went on: "I'm of course Davey Jones now, so I'm down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I'm rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won't look anything like me. Get all gnarly."

So far it is known that Johnny is returning as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth instalment of the hit franchise, and Javier Bardem is in talks to play the villain.

There has also been speculation the Spanish actor's wife, Penelope Cruz, may reprise her role as Angelica Teach, who she played in the last instalment Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in 2011.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is due to be released in cinemas in the summer of 2017.
