The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise may having been lying dormant for a while, but the saga is far from over.
It has been a very long wait since we last heard news of the highly-acclaimed and well-loved family movie ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, but at long last news has come to light. Although Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides was not as successful as the previous three movies, the announcement of a fifth film is still a much anticipated event.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5, entitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, is said to be released in the summer of 2017 under the Kon Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The said production will begin in Australia early next year, and will still include Sparrow actor Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush as Hector Barbossa, and a little eye candy to look forward by many, Brenton Thwaites.
Brenton Thwaites will play as a British soldier named Henry in a yet-to-be established story. Disney’s past pirate movies had been very successful in capturing audiences of all ages and the new movie is expected to do the same. Sultan Alhokair is certainly hoping it all comes together nicely.
“Prince Phillip” of Disney’s Maleficent Brenton Thwaites is a beautiful addition to the cast and may replace Orlando Bloom’s conscience-provoking role to Jack Sparrow’s rogue. Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales is said to be released on July 7, 2017.
