Johnny Depp is returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise for the fifth installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales. The actor, who has played Captain Jack Sparrow since the first film in 2003, will once again don the iconic costume and face off against pirate hunter Captain Armando Salazar, played by Javier Bardem.
Johnny Depp returns to the Pirates franchise
It’s been six years since Johnny Depp last donned the pirate hat and swash-buckled his way across the big screen, but it looks like he’ll be back for more adventures on the high seas.
Depp is set to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in the upcoming fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is currently being referred to as Dead Men Tell No Tales. The news was confirmed by producer Jerry Bruckheimer via Twitter, who also shared a photo of himself with Depp on the set of the film.
This will be the first Pirates movie since 2011’s On Stranger Tides, which saw Depp’s character team up with Penelope Cruz’s Angelica to search for the Fountain of Youth. It’s not yet known what plot Dead Men Tell No Tales will follow, but we’re sure it will be full of excitement, humor, and plenty of pirate hijinks.
Filming is currently underway in Australia, and Dead Men Tell No Tales is set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
What this means for the future of the franchise
The news of Johnny Depp’s return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will come as a relief to many fans of the series. For years, there has been speculation that the actor would not reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. However, it seems that Depp has had a change of heart and will once again take on the iconic role.
This is good news for the future of the franchise, as it was beginning to look like it might be rebooted without Depp. Now, it seems that the original cast and crew will be back for at least one more movie. This is sure to please fans who have been clamoring for another installment in the popular series.
It remains to be seen what direction the new movie will take, but with Depp back on board, it is sure to be an exciting ride.
Will there be another Pirates movie?
Yes, there will be another pirate of the Caribbean movie! Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in the fifth installment of the franchise, which is currently in development.
While plot details are being kept under wraps, sources say that the new film will be a return to form for the franchise, with Depp’s Sparrow front and center. The last Pirates film, 2017’s Dead Men Tell No Tales, was critically panned and failed to match the success of its predecessors at the box office.
With Depp back on board, it looks like Disney is hoping to course-correct and bring some of that old magic back to the franchise. No release date has been announced yet for the fifth Pirates film, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available!
How did the franchise do without Depp?
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise took a bit of a hit without Depp in the fifth installment. The film grossed $172 million domestically and $795 million worldwide, which was significantly less than the previous films in the franchise. Additionally, many fans and critics felt that the film was missing something without Depp’s iconic character, Jack Sparrow.
It’s great to see Johnny Depp returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He is one of the most iconic characters in the films and it’s always a pleasure to watch him on screen. I’m sure that his return will bring a fresh new take on the franchise and I can’t wait to see what he does with the character. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the article.
