Disney has today announced that production has commenced on location in Australia on Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning.

The movie is the fifth entry in the blockbuster franchise inspired by the classic Disney Theme Parks attraction, which has earned $3.7 billion in worldwide box office. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will film entirely at Village Roadshow Studios and on locations within Queensland, Australia.

The cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales includes Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Javier Bardem, and rising young stars Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, and Golshifteh Farahani. Returning are Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs and Stephen Graham as Scrum.

With this announcement comes an official synopsis which obviously reveals the first official plot details for the movie. It doesn’t really sound all that different to previous instalments if we’re being honest though!

“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.” The movie will be released on on July 7th, 2017.
