It is pretty clear that Disney had a hit with Pirates of the Caribbean was a very surprise hit for Disney, and its sequels have made the studio more treasure. While most audiences will agree that the quality of the sequels has waned in parts 2-4, it must still be making money as On Stranger Tides still made a heavy profit. This is the news for Pirates of the Caribbean 5, or Dead Men Tell No Tales with Release Date and News, including the possibility that there might not be another Pirates sequel.
According to the Australia Network, there are reports circulating that Pirates of the Caribbean 5 could be cancelled. This is due to Johnny Depp is constant fighting with his wife, Amber Heard. Apparently, this has caused the production team to lose their patience with the couple. Sadly, there are even rumors of Johnny being "on the set as little as possible" and "arriving on set under the influence of alcohol".
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is one of those films that has been put off for a long time due to some problem or the other. It actually was supposed to be released this summer. According to Vine Report, the plot of the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise involves Captain Salazar, who is on some kind of homicidal rampage against other pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow has to stop him, and it looks like Johnny Depp will be reprising the role that made him a household name.
The role of Captain Salazar will be played by Javier Bardem, most famous for his villainous portrayals in No Country for Old Men and Skyfall. The Daily Mail has pictures of the actor in pale face paint, and his character might have a CG facial similar to the one that Bill Nighy when he played Davy Jones in two films of the franchise.
The film is reported to be shot in Queensland, and there has been reports that Orlando Bloom could be back to reprise his role as Will Turner. After all, Will was turned into the new Davy Jones at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, so it makes sense that he would show up. There are rumors going about that Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) will be playing Will's son, who was briefly shown after the end credits of the third movie of the franchise.
Thwaites has not confirmed or denied this rumor, but there is a quote on Screen Rant that gives credence to this rumor as he says: "It's about a young man who wants to reconnect with his father, Davy Jones. There's a curse that prevents him from doing that. I think it's about how he goes around that and tries to fix it and he has to save his dad. I'm looking forward to it. It'll be a lot of fun!"
The film's official imdb page shows that Geoffrey Rush will be reprising his role as Barbossa, and there will be a new character named Carina who will be played by Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner).
Expect to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in theaters two years from now on July 7, 2017. It is possible that it will not be the last in the series. Considering some of the rumors that involve Johnny Depp on set, it might be the last for Captain Jack Sparrow, and hopefully the filming will occur even in the midst of these rumored troubles.
