Orlando Bloom Abandons 'Pirates'
Orlando Bloom announced that he will be leaving the film franchise Pirates of the Caribbean and will not star in the fourth film. “I think Will is sort of swimming around with the fish at the bottom of the ocean,” Bloom told London’s Daily Star, referring his character Will Turner.
Bloom says he would like to play different roles instead. That’s not to say that he’s not excited about seeing Johnny Depp reprise his role as Capt. Jack Sparrow. “I think it’s going to be great," he said. "Whatever Johnny does, I think it’s fantastic.” He’s also eager to see how new director Rob Marshall (Nine, Chicago) handles the franchise. “I think that [Marshall’s] an amazing director," he said. "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.” –NATASHA ALLOWAY
