Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Could Be A Reboot. While doing press for his upcoming film The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, actor Orlando Bloom spoke to IGN about being in talks to reprise his role in the Pirates franchise as well as what could be in store for his character. The most intriguing bit of information is that the next film (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) may be a franchise reboot. Bloom had this to say,

“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.

“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. [Gestures to face] Get all gnarly.”

The Pirates of The Caribbean franchise exists in a rich and vibrant fantasy world with so many story-telling roads to explore that it seems like a wasted opportunity for Disney to tether the franchise to Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner.  Bloom has not appeared in the series since 2007’s At World’s End and the fans of the franchise are not clamouring for the return of Will Turner the way that they had for Jack Sparrow.
