Production wrapped earlier this summer on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, after a five-month shoot in Australia. Since this highly-anticipated sequel isn't set to hit theaters until July 7, 2017, it isn't known when fans may expect the first trailer. One of the new additions to the franchise in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is Kaya Scodelario, who revealed some new details about the pirate adventure while promoting her sequel The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, in theaters September 18. During an interview with Digital Spy, the actress revealed that this follow-up will remind fans of the very first adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), 2003's Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl.
"It [does have] a lot more of the first movie, that's what they wanted to bring it back to. [The producers] want to take it back to the beginning again. They wanted it to have this epic journey, and for it to make sense, and for it to tie things up, and also lead to new storylines."
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. Kaya Scodelario portrays Carina Smith in this action-adventure, with the actress revealing that Captain Jack "messes everything up" for her character.
"[Carina] is an astronomer, and she is an academic. She's fighting for the right to study at university, because women couldn't at that time. So she's on her own journey - looking for the trident of Poseidon - and she has a diary with clues, and she encounters Jack Sparrow along the way, and he messes everything up. As he does. And it's fun!"
The supporting cast includes Orlando Bloom, returning as Will Turner from the first three movies after sitting out 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Brenton Thwaites, Martin Klebba, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally, Stephen Graham and Golshifteh Farahani. Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning direct from a script by Jeff Nathanson. What do you think of these new details?
