Brenton Thwaits has been cast alongside Johnny Depp in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. He will play as Henry which was a question mark before about the casting for this role.
The report also says that Javier Bardem will be playing the film’s villain, Captain Brand. According to The Wrap, Brand is a ghost that is hellbent on getting revenge against Captain Jack Sparrow. Apparently he blames Sparrow for his brother’s death.
Geoffrey Rush is returning to the franchise as Captain Barbossa, and there are rumors that Orlando Bloom could return as William Turner as well.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is set to be shot in Queensland, Australia, and it’s being directed by the talented Kon-Tikihelmers, Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.
I’m actually looking forward to this one because I think the directors will be able to give us something different and fresh. The movie is set to be released in theaters on July 7th, 2017.
