For a short ride at Disney, the producers behind the Pirates Of The Caribbean have gotten a lot of mileage out of that ride.
With filming on “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” having wrapped, the stars are now back out doing other projects including actress Kaya Scodelario who has been out doing promotional work for next week’s release of “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials”.
Speaking about the fifth ‘Pirates’ film with Digital Spy, she says she believes the new film will be much more akin to the first ‘Pirates’ in terms of tone and style. She also elaborated a bit on her character of Carina Smyth:
“[It] will have much more of the feel of the first film. [The producers] want to take it back to the beginning again. They wanted it to have this epic journey, and for it to make sense, and for it to tie things up, and also lead to new storylines.
[Carina] is an astronomer, and she is an academic. She’s fighting for the right to study at university, because women couldn’t at that time. So she’s on her own journey – looking for the trident of Poseidon – and she has a diary with clues, and she encounters Jack Sparrow along the way, and he messes everything up. As he does. And it’s fun.”
Story-wise, Dead Men Tell No Tales will revolve around Carina and Jack’s (Depp) efforts to locate the Trident of Poseidon, in order to prevent a crew of vengeful ghost pirates – led by one Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) – from killing every pirate on the high seas. The movie will also bring back Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, with Thwaites having indicated that Will still holds the title of ‘Davy Jones’, a.k.a. captain of the Flying Dutchman, when filmgoers see him again, according to ScreenRant.
Directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will, as previously announced, also feature the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa. They’re joined by Academy Award winner Javier Bardem, who plays the central antagonist, Captain Salazar. Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent, The Giver) also plays another new character named Henry.
“Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is currently targeting a July 7th 2017 release.
