Johnny Depp will return as Captain Jack Sparrow, with Javier Bardem playing the villain Captain Brand and Brenton Thwaites is also set to co-star.
Norwegian film directing team Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki, Bandidas) will helm the action adventure.
The fifth installment follows the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow as the eccentric pirate crosses paths with Captain Brand, a ghost who seeks revenge for his brother’s death, which he blames on Jack Sparrow.
Pleased to announce that we cast Kaya Scodelario for the 5th Pirates of the Caribbean. Talented young actor from Skins & The Maze Runner.
