Amidst the buzz surrounding Disney's intention to make the fourth installment of "Pirates of the Carribbean" franchise, unpleasant rumor has come to the surface that Orlando Bloom would not reprise his role as Will Turner in the planned project.
A report found in British tabloid The Daily Star shockingly quoted an alleged Disney insider claiming Bloom's character would be killed off in the third sequel of the popular series. Bloom, as the unnamed source has suggested, is considered to only give fewer contribution to the tremendous success of the franchise comparing to that gained from his co-stars Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley.
"The script for the fourth Pirates movie is being worked on and all the finances are in place, but it was decided Bloom's character and a number of minor roles were not necessary to ensure it would be yet another box office smash for Disney," so the report stated.
However, need not grieve, Bloom's fans, for this can turn to be untrue as Disney, through its publicity firm New Media Strategies, has officially issued a statement in response to this matter, saying such rumors "are completely unfounded."
