    "The Pirates of the Caribbean" is about to set sail for box office gold once again, but it'll be without Orlando Bloom.

    The British actor told MTV he will not be joining the Rob Marshall-helmed fourth installment of the series, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," as production begins in Hawaii.

    "No, definitely not," Bloom said when asked if he would be in Pirates No. 4. So what's happened to his lovable Will Turner? "I think Will is sort of swimming around with the fish at the bottom of the ocean," he said.

    The pirate franchise's box-office and spiritual anchor, Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, will be donning the pirate hat again, making it a must-see. But Bloom will be missed as he moves onto other roles, especially with recent news that Keira Knightley has bowed out, too.

    "I had a great time making those movies," he said. "I just really wanted to do different things, but I think it's going to be great.
