First Look: Johnny Depp In PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer released on Twitter the first photo of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning (“Kon-Tiki”).
The fifth entry in the blockbuster franchise will film entirely at Village Roadshow Studios and on locations within Queensland, Australia.
Johnny Depp is joined by Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”), Kaya Scodelario (“The Maze Runner,” British television’s “Skins”), Brenton Thwaites (“Maleficent,” “The Giver”) and Golshifteh Farahani (“The Patience Stone,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings”).
Rejoining the action are Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs and Stephen Graham as Scrum.
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.
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and written by Jeff Nathanson (“Catch Me If You Can,” “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”).
Sandberg & Rønning directed “Kon-Tiki,” the story of famed explorer Thor Heyerdahl, which was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film from their native Norway.
