We learned a few months ago that Queensland, Australia had won the right to host production for most of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the fifth entry in the blockbuster movie series inspired by the classic Disney theme park attraction. The previous four films have reaped $3.7 billion at the box office, so there are high hopes for this next film.
The news today is that production has officially begun and we have the first look at the cast and plot for the new film. Plus, we already have a picture from the set in Australia.

Joining Johnny Depp, who will reprise his creation of Captain Jack Sparrow, will be Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”), rising young stars Kaya Scodelario (“The Maze Runner,” British television’s “Skins”) and Brenton Thwaites (“Maleficent,” “The Giver”) and Golshifteh Farahani (“The Patience Stone,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings”). Rejoining the action are Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs and Stephen Graham as Scrum.
As for the story, this is what we’ve learned:
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 (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
Okay. So it’s another McGuffin chase. It’s probably a good idea not to stray too far from the winning formula.Read More »Pirates 5 “Dead Men Tell No Tales” begins filming Down Under
