This is a nice thought, but i don't see it happening any time soon. There are many problems today with the Church of Pope Francis so Orthodox may be reluctant to place themselves under his authority.

They need look no further than traditional catholic circles to see the living contradiction of traditional Catholics. 

Traditional Catholics: "You must submit and obey the Pope or you will go to hell"
Also Traditional Catholics: "Bergolio and his modernist freemasonic anti-church blah blah blah blah"
The Orthodox can see the contradiction.  It only strengthens their arguments.
The Church is bigger, greater than and never defined or limited by any given bad pope.  And God knows, there have been more than enough of those, for reasons best known to Him.  There is no contradiction, only a Holy Church led at times by terribly fallen people.

(And I'm not even a Roman Catholic!)
