Orlando Bloom's much-loved character in Pirates Of The Caribbean will reportedly be killed off in the fourth instalment of the Disney series, as producers struggle to "cut costs". According to British newspaper reports, Bloom's character WILL TURNER is deemed "not necessary" to the sea-faring saga, although his castmates Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp are unaffected by the cutbacks. A Disney insider tells British newspaper The Daily Star Sunday, "Pirates of The Caribbean has proved a huge hit and made a fortune for everyone involved. "A huge chunk of that success is on the shoulders of Johnny Depp as CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW. Love interest Keira Knightley, who plays ELIZABETH SWANN is a huge hit. "But producers and directors are now trying to cut costs. Orlando Bloom has suffered as a result. "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."

What!!!! Are they crazy!!!?!!! There can't be a Pirates of the Caribbean without Johnny Depp AND Orlando Bloom!!!!?!!!! Have they lost the plot?1? I think they have lost the plot! Pirates of the Caribbean consitutes of Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly. You cannot and it is virtually impossible to make a Pirates of the Caribbean movie without Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly. Wake up people!!!

No! No! No! They make the films what they are and why break a winning team - strong consideration before decisions like chopping a main character - will the films be the same - I DONT THINK SO!

Okay, that's preposterous. If these writers are leaning towards some kind of romance between Jack and the Kera Knightly character then that is a HUGE mistake. Capt. Jack is a comic character. Give him a comic girlfriend to moon over in some ridiculous way if you think he needs a romantic interest and leave poor Orlando's girlfriend alone. Children want to believe in true love. Let them. I really don't think Johnny would play in such a movie that screws his friend Orlando out of a job so Pirates IV ain't going to happen without Orlando. Cutting expenses? Why? they just made like a billion trillion dollars! Put it back into the films and really make it great. Surely you jest.

When i go to see these movies, i go to see Depp. But why should they kill half of the best screen duo in the last few years? If they want to kill somebody, they should kill Keira's character...

This is nuts. Kill off Will and I won't see the fourth episode. Watching Will die would kill *me* and turn a fun series into a sadistic mess. Granted this ending is set up in the first film when Will says, "I'd die for her." But end up with Sparrow?? Get real. He's twice her age. If you think Governor Swan had problems with a blacksmith for a son-in-law, he'll have a stroke with a pirate.

they probably aren't cutting off gibbs because of his part in the crew... and i wouldnt really mind seeing a pirates without orlando... but i dont see how doing that will be cutting costs when they just made alot of money, which is somewhat because of him...x Nash
