London: Film producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that it was "time to move on" from Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley in the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ franchise.

The Oscar-winning film producer, who worked with the stars on the first three movies in the popular series, has revealed there is no need for the A-list duo to appear in the fourth instalment as the stories of their characters Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann have already been told, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"The characters are after the Fountain of Youth, that`s the plot. We have no Orlando or Keira but you move on. They were great but I think it was time to move on - we`d told their stories," said Bruckheimer.
