Pirates of the Caribbean 5 2017
It appears that Johnny Depp is in line to reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in a new Pirates film to premiere July 2017.
The subtitle of the film will be Dead Men Tell No Tales. Not a whole lot seems to be on the table for details at this time, other than the release date. Disney also signed a deal with Australia taking advantage of a pretty lucrative $18.9 million in tax incentives to film on location. Filming will begin early 2015.
There are some rumors floating about of whom will be cast to appear in the film, including a rumor about Orlando Bloom reprising his role as Will Turner. I personally doubt that Orlando Bloom will return to the franchise, simply as the first three films centered on his, and Keira Knightley's characters. The new trilogy set is set to put Capt. Jack front and center, and not focus on other characters.
With filming off of Australia, will this film still take place in the Caribbean, or are we looking at further adventures further out on the "high seas" in the Pirates franchise?
