Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Has a Plot Now, if That’s Something That Interests You
And a Javier Bardem!
What we know so far: Jeff Nathanson (Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Catch Me If You Can) is writing the fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning will direct Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally and Stephen Graham. Orlando Bloom said he’d be open to returning to the franchise but this new info from The Hollywood Reporter does not mention him.
Here’s the plot:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) 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.
So, pretty much par for the pirate course. THR also notes Exodus: Gods and Kings actress Golshifteh Farahani has joined the cast. What do you think? Should the franchise have wrapped up already or are you interested in this next step?
