"Pirates of the Caribbean 5" will reportedly be a soft reboot of the series. Orlando Bloom who played the character of Will Turner in the first three instalments recently revealed that he might return for the series. He also said that the new film could focus on Will Turner's relationship with his son. [Warning: Potential Spoilers Ahead!]

"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," said Bloom in his interview with IGN. Will returned to his wife Elizabeth and his son in the climax scene of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Chest." However, the final fate of Will was not revealed. The leaflet inside the special edition 2-Disc DVD had stated that Will, who is the captain of the Flying Dutchman will remain on the ship and will return to land once in ten years.

Bloom hinted in his interview that there is a possibility of his character "rumbling round the bottom of the ocean." Meanwhile, Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. According to Slash Film, Brenton Thwaites, who has been casted in the role of British soldier for the "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" could play Will's son. His name will be Henry.

Geoffrey Rush could reprise his famous character Barbossa, while Javier Bardem is rumoured to play Captain Brand who wants to take revenge from Jack Sparrow, according to Slash Film. Bardem will play a ghost who thinks that Sparrow is responsible for his brother's death. Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg will be directing the fifth instalment in the franchise. The film is currently in its pre-production stage and is set to release in 2017. Keira Knightley reportedly will not be seen in the film.

The fourth instalment in the series, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" was 14th highest-grossing film of all time worldwide and was a major box office success. It is expected that the fifth instalment will prove as successful. "Pirates of the Caribbean 5's" official title is "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales."
