You're going to have to squint really hard and play 'Where's Waldo?' to find him, but we're pretty sure Johnny Depp is dressed as Capt. Jack Sparrow somewhere in a new cast and crew photo that has just arrived from the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales set. Today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. And of course, Walt Disney Pictures wasn't going to let the holiday go by without sharing a little something from their new movie. Sure, a trailer isn't ready yet, and probably won't be until sometime in 2016. This fifth chapter in the popular franchise doesn't even open until 2017. But we do get this cool souvenir, which is made to look like it came from a photo op at Disneyland.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales producer Jerry Bruckheimer shared this photo of the cast and crew on his official Twitter. We're not sure who all is included in the photo, but surely we're looking at some of the main cast alongside the hard working men and woman who make shooting possible. Is this our first look at Orlando Bloom reprising his role as Will Turner? Could be. We're really not sure.
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 (Javier 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. Production on this action-adventure started in Australia back in February, with principal photography wrapping in July. So, this photo is probably a little dated.
The film is directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning and stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kevin McNally, Kaya Scodelario, Golshifteh Farahani, Stephen Graham, David Wenham, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush. Jerry Bruckheimer is the producer and Chad Oman, Mike Stenson, Joe Caracciolo, Jr. and Brigham Taylor serve as executive producers. Jeff Nathanson wrote the screenplay, with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales set to hit U.S. theaters on July 7, 2017.
Orlando Bloom's return as Will Turner was first rumored back in September 2014, but was officially confirmed during D23 this past August. He starred as Will Turner in the first three adventures, 2003's Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl, 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. He did not come back for the 2011 sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It was also revealed in August that Kaya Scodelario's character is named Carina Smyth, and Brenton Thwaites' character is named Henry. They're both possibly included here. You'll need to get your trusty Pirate magnifying glass out to see for sure. While we were holding out for some new footage on this Pirates' holiday, I guess we'll have to settle for this photo instead.
