According to an article in Canoe.ca Orlando Bloom is officially out of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie. While Johnny Depp has been confirmed for some time, it has also been well known that Keira Knightly, Bloom’s love interest in the films has said she will not participate in the fourth installment. Thus it was not a tremendous surprise that Bloom was not on board.
According to Canoe, Bloom said:
I think Will is sort of swimming around with the fish at the bottom of the ocean. I had a great time making those movies. I just really wanted to do different things.
Johnny Depp is still slated to star in the movie, which is titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which is scheduled for release in 2011.
