• Kaya Scodelario May Set Sail For Pirates of the caribbean 5

She’s in early talks for Dead Men Tell No Tales

It may not be sailing into cinemas this year or even next, but Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales clearly has the wind in its sails and is gathering up cast members. The latest potential recruit – because she’s still at the “early talks” stage – is The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario. While almost nothing is concrete about the plot at this point, we do know that Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are marshalling together a production that will include Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow (natch), Geoffrey Rush likely as Barbossa, Brenton Thwaites as a dashing British soldier and a murderous ghostly villain named Captain Brand. The likes of Javier Bardem and Christoph Waltz have been approached for that role, but there’s no confirmed casting yet. Orlando Bloom has also gone on record to say there have been discussions about him returning in some form. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is currently aiming for a July 7, 2017 release date. As for Scodelario, she’ll next be seen in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, set to arrive here on September 18.


Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 SPOILERS | “There’s going to be a new female lead, a sparring partner for Jack Sparrow. She’s nothing like him, mind you – despite being suspected of witchcraft, she’s actually a woman of science. There’s also going to be a ghost in a leading role. It’s this character, a former member of the British military now sided with Barbossa on a revenge mission, that gives the film its title. The film starts with a rather awkward wedding and climaxes with a riff on the myth of the Bermuda Triangle."
