As many of you know, or maybe you don’t, Disney made the deciosin to go through with another Pirates movie sometime ago. Entitled Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides I can only wonder how this franchise can get stranger. Be that as it may, if you’ve followed the series this far then you know that Orlando Bloom’s character won’t be returning anytime soon and so Walt Disney has substituted Bloom for the young English actor Sam Claflin.
For what it’s worth, Claflin looks as though he could fit the bill. Obviously one of the main reasons he was chosen was probably because of his looks, though somewhat ironically, Claflin’s part will be playing the role of a Catholic missionary…take that as you will. Anyway, the movie is scheduled to be released on May 20, 2011 so we’ll see then how Claflin does when he has someone like Johnny Depp to contend with.
