Fifth “Pirates” To Go Back To Basics

While the first film in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise remains widely loved, the increasingly lacklustre sequels have taken their toll on its reputation to the point that expectations for the upcoming fifth film in the series are not high.

With filming on “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” having wrapped, the stars are now back out doing other projects including actress Kaya Scodelario who has been out doing promotional work for next week’s release of “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials”.

Speaking about the fifth ‘Pirates’ film with Digital Spy, she says she belives the new film will be much more akin to the first ‘Pirates’ in terms of tone and style. She also elaborated a bit on her character of Carina Smyth:

“[It] will have much more of the feel of the first film. [The producers] want to take it back to the beginning again. They wanted it to have this epic journey, and for it to make sense, and for it to tie things up, and also lead to new storylines.

[Carina] is an astronomer, and she is an academic. She’s fighting for the right to study at university, because women couldn’t at that time. So she’s on her own journey – looking for the trident of Poseidon – and she has a diary with clues, and she encounters Jack Sparrow along the way, and he messes everything up. As he does. And it’s fun.”

“Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is currently targeting a July 7th 2017 release.
