While promoting The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, Bloom mentioned that he hasn't signed the contact for his return yet, but is very excited about the film's plot.
"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."

This story contains a spoiler from the third Pirates Of The Caribbean film.
After the criticism aimed at the second and third Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, the fourth - Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - was supposed to be a reboot of sorts. The director changed, it was set to be more of a standalone movie, and it turned out to have a sporting claim on being the worst of the lot.
Even the most vehement defender of the Pirates Of The Caribbean sequels tends to admit that none of the follow-ups have come close to matching the first film. And so perhaps it's unsurprising that Disney is looking to re-energise things again for the upcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.
Orlando Bloom has been chatting to IGN, »
The fifth Pirates of the Carribbean film in Disney’s cash-cow franchise could be a reboot. The news comes from an interview IGN did with Orlando Bloom. Earlier this year the actor revealed that he has been in talks with the studio to reprise his role as Will Turner. There’s no official word on if that’s actually the case or not, but when asked about Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales he said:
“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.

Since the Critics' Choice Awards were introduced in 1995, 14 performers have reaped Oscar nominations without first contending at either these kudos Or the Screen Actors Guild Awards Or the Golden Globes. That is good news for the likes of Timothy Spall ("Mr. Turner"), Hilary Swank ("The Homesman"), Tom Wilkinson ("Selma") and Laura Dern ("Wild") who were snubbed by these precursor prizes. All were at one time in our top five for the Oscars and could be vindicated come nominations morning. Below, we profile the lucky few who came out of left field to contend at the Oscars without first having been in the running at at least one of these awards. However, for all of them the nominations had to be reward enough, as none of them won the Oscar. -Break- Best Actor Clint Eastwood, "Million Dollar Baby" (2004) Tommy Lee Jones, "In the Valley of Elah" (2007) Javier Bardem, "Biutiful&quo..."' »
There has been a lot of casting speculation surrounding Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, with Brenton Thaites (Maleficent) leading the charge. But according to original star Orlando Bloom, who is rumoured to return to the franchise after missing Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, we might not be heading for a fifth chapter, but a whole reboot to the series.
“I’m not entirely sure that [I’ll be back] just yet, but there are talks,” The actor told IGN. “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.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is currently in casting mode, bringing on actor Brenton Thwaites last month for the key role of a British soldier who teams up with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). We also reported yesterday that Disney is eyeing five actresses for the female lead, who will serve as the love interest for Brenton Thwaites' character. While promoting The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Orlando Bloom revealed that he is also in talks to return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as Will Turner, although it will be a much different version of the character than previous films. Here's what the actor had to say below, revealing that he's still in talks and that Pirates 5 may be a reboot of the franchise.

Thwaites was essentially taking on the young hunky male role in the film which Orlando Bloom's Will Turner character served as in the first three movies. Speaking with IGN this week, Bloom suggested the new film is not just a sequel but a minor reboot/refresh.
He also seemed to indicate he may be involved in some way, and that the film could tie back to the coda of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" where it was shown he and Keira Knightley's Elizabeth had a son - could that kid have grown up and is now Thwaites' character? Here's what Bloom says:

As studios wind down before the holidays, Disney is looking to lock up someone for the last major role in its next installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise starring Johnny Depp.
Sources tell Variety that Disney is looking to test a handful of girls over the next week for the female lead of the action-adventure. Some of the actresses on the list include “Miss Potter’s” Lucy Boynton, “Endless Love’s” Gabriella Wilde, Jenna Thiam, “Maze Runner’s” Kaya Scodelario and Alexandra Dowling of “The Musketeers.”
Details on the role are vague other than she would likely be a love interest to Brenton Thwaites, who recently won the role of a British soldier who teams with Depp’s Jack Sparrow.

Disney is reportedly looking to test a handful of girls over the next week for the last major role in its next instalment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
The part will essentially be the female lead of the action-adventure, and the love interest for the British soldier to be played by young Australian hunk Brenton Thwaites.
The list includes the likes of Lucy Boynton ("Miss Potter"), Kaya Scodelario ("The Maze Runner"), Gabriella Wilde ("Endless Love"), Alexandra Dowling ("The Musketeers") and Jenna Thiam ("The Returned"). There are others as well, but those names haven't been revealed.
The studio will do chemistry tests with Thwaites and the girls to see who best fits the role, and details about the part remain decidedly vague. Astrid Berges-Frisbey played the equivalent in the last film, a captive mermaid who falls for a missionary (Sam Claflin).

With Taken 3 looking like the last entry in the Liam Neeson franchise, we are going to need another aging actor used to critical acclaim to kick ass with a particular set of skills. Luckily, Sean Penn was willing to take a break from his humanitarian efforts around the world to wield some serious firepower for Pierre Morel in The Gunman. Co-starring Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, Idris Elba, and Javier Bardem, The Gunman has a cast that rivals any number of studio pictures and yet feels like »
