It's not been long since the last update on the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but Orlando Bloom has something important to tell fans about the film: the next film might be a reboot.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and The Lord of the Rings alum may have not signed any contract yet to make things official and is still talking it out with the people concerned, however he does admit that the fifth Pirates film's plot line intrigues him a lot.

According to his interview with IGN he shares, "I'm not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet, but there are talks. 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. Get all gnarly."

If ever Bloom will be returning for the fifth film, he will be joined by Brenton Thwaites and former cast mates, Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush.

Unfortunately, details on what the film's plot has not yet been finalized. However, it is assumed that a malevolent ghost is bent on exacting revenge on fan-favorite Captain Jack Sparrow for personal reasons. Looks like Sparrow's in hot water again.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale is set to premiere in theaters on July of 2017. It will be directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The film is set to be filmed in Queensland, Australia this year.
