Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
I am a HUGE Pirates of the Caribbean fan, so when I heard news that the 5th installment is now filming for a July 2017 release, I just had to share 😀
Here’s info about the film from Wikipedia:
Captain Jack Sparrow is pursued by an old enemy, Captain Salazar, who along with his crew of ghost pirates has escaped from the Bermuda Triangle and is determined to kill every pirate at sea. Jack seeks the mythical Trident of Poseidon, which will bestow upon its possessor total control over the seas, to use against Salazar.
Initially planed for a 2015 release, the film was delayed to 2016 and then to 2017 due to script and budget issues. Principal photography started in Australia in February 2015 after the Australian government offered Disney $20 million of tax incentives. It is set to be released on July 7, 2017.
Here’s the article from Disney Insider:
Production has begun on location in Australia on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the blockbuster franchise inspired by the classic Disney Parks attraction. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow and will be joined by Javier Bardem, Kayla Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, and Golshifteh Farahani. Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally, and Stephen Graham are rejoining the action as Barbossa, Gibbs, and Scrum, respectively.
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea… including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
Some equally exciting news is that Orlando Bloom will be returning to reprise his character Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!
There are rumors that one of the central story lines of this film will be Will Turner’s relationship with his son – who will be played by Brenton Thwaites (the actor who played Prince Phillip in Disney’s Maleficent).
So, how excited are you to see this film?!? I know I can’t wait 😉
