Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Plot: Dead Men Tell No Tales draws inspiration from 1st film; Kaya Scondelario, Brenton Thwaites arranged for a romantic story arc
Captain Jack Sparrow is up for another round of adventure in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales. While the film is not expected to hit theaters until 2017, plot rumors have been rampant.
The long-running franchise's fifth instalment is underway and as reported by Master Herald, franchise newbie Kaya Scondelario recently confirmed rumors that the upcoming film will draw a lot of inspiration and attempt to gain the success of The Curse of the Black Pearl which was released in 2003. Moreover, Scondelario confirmed that the producers aimed to return to the first film in order to connect everything in the franchise which would consequently make way for new storylines to be developed.
Aside from going back to its roots, Movie News Guide reports Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tailes will also feature returning characters such as Orlando Bloom's Will Turner,who will meet his son with Elizabeth Swann, Henry, played by Brenton Thwaites. However, this reunion will not include Elizabeth as Keira Knightley remains to be unattached to the fifth movie.
Knightley's absence subsequently fuelled rumors that her character could be dead in the film. Furthermore, new plot theories have also noted that with introduction of Scondelario's Carina Smyth and Thwaites' Henry, a romantic story arc could be explored for them. If it is eventually deemed to be true, their love story could be included in future instalments of the franchise.
As reported by Movie Web, the new film will center on Jack Sparrow as he ventures on another adventure in seeking the mythical Trident of Poseidon in hopes to ward off his evil nemesis, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), who comes back from the dead with the intention to kill every pirate at sea.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales is directed by Joachim Ronning as well as Espen Sandberg, and written by Jeff Nathanson. The film is currently in post-production, and is set for theatrical release on July 07, 2017.
