Max Irons or Sam Claflin Could Replace Orlando Bloom in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4'


The two youngsters, who are allegedly also competing for a role in Catherine Hardwicke-directed film, are said in the running to be the new lead actor in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

As Orlando Bloom has announced that he left "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, someone has to step in and replace him in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides". Words are, two newcomers Max Irons and Sam Claflin are currently competing to take a leading part in the upcoming movie.

There has been no word on whether the two actors would take over Bloom's character Will Turner or they will be seen as a new character. Interestingly, E! Online reported, Irons and Claflin are currently also competing for a role in "The Girl With the Red Riding Hood" which will be directed by "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke.

24-year-old Irons has appeared in a recent film adaptation of "Dorian Gray" with Colin Firth. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Claflin is currently shooting British television series "The Pillars of the Earth" in Budapest.

In another "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" news, it has just been reported that Stephen Graham is in talks to join the cast to play the role of Scram. The British actor recently appeared as notorious bank robber Baby Face Nelson in "Public Enemies".

Similar to Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley has also decided that she will not return to "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides". Thus, the filmmakers have cast Penelope Cruz to play the daughter of villainous Blackbeard. Her character will also have a flirt with Captain Jack Sparrow.

Johnny Depp will reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in the fourth installment, which will see the eccentric pirate on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Rob Marshall is on board to direct the upcoming movie, which is expected to start shooting in Hawaii this summer for May 20, 2011 release date in the U.S.
