We were worried for a minute that we’d never get to ride the high seas with Jack Sparrow ever again, but there’s good new for all you diehard “Pirates of the Caribbean” fans. Filming has officially begun on the fifth movie in the series, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” down in Queensland, Australia.
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard news of the fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and for a while it was unclear whether or not we’d ever see Jack Sparrow again. We can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Johnny Depp in all his eyeliner-y glory will be back, alongside Javier Bardem as the big baddie, and a host of fresh young faces who’ll be walking the plank.
The new additions include Golshifteh Farahani (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Rosewater”), Kaya Scodelario (“The Maze Runner,” “Skins,” “Wuthering Heights”), and Brenton Thwaites (“The Giver,” “Maleficent”). Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (“Kon-Tiki”) are directing.
“Dead Men Tell No Tales” will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
