Disney has released a new synopsis for their upcoming film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and it offers up some new details on the story. We haven't seen anything from the film since the teaser trailer and poster were released, so if you were looking for a new update, here ya go!
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifull small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.
Geoffrey Rush will also be back as Barbossa, Kevin R. McNally will play Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani takes on the role of the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham plays Scarfield, and Stephen Graham is Scrum.
The film is being directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki), and it hits theaters on May 26, 2017. I've got high hopes for this film because of the directors who are making it.
