While Johnny Depp has already signed on for the fourth installment of Pirates of The Caribbean, the younger swashbuckler in the film has confirmed that he is officially bowing out.
“No, definitely not,” Orlando Bloom said when asked if we was going to reprise his role as the dashing Will Turner.
“I think Will is sort of swimming around with the fish at the bottom of the ocean.”
Despite his absence from Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Bloom has only positive things to say about the Disney franchise.
“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.”
He is excited about the production’s newest member, Chicago and Nine director Rob Marshall.
“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.”
Keira Knightley has also jumped ship and will not return for the fourth movie.
