Disney confirms that Orlando Bloom (Blackhawk Down, Lord of the Rings) is returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales.
Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow will be still the main focus of the story with the new enemy played by Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Man) haunting him. Brenton Thwaites (Son of the Gun), Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), David Wenham (Lord of the Rings), Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally and Stephen Graham are confirmed in the cast but it is not known if Keira Knightley will show up in this movie. Jerry Bruckheimer will be producing the movie with Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning (Kon-Tiki) as directors based on the script by Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 1&2).
It is expected that Orlando Bloom’s character (Will Turner) will be reunited with his son, as played by Brenton Thwaites after he took the wheel of The Flying Dutchman in the third movie.
This will be the fifth installment of the franchise, with the official synopsis provided by Disney during D23:
“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.”
The movie is set for sailing in the pirate fashion once more at the cinemas on 7 July 2017.
