Check out potential plot details for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Sep. 11, 2013by: Alex Maidy

If anyone is excited for the fifth entry in the Adventures of Jack Sparrow, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, here are some new plot details that have been discovered surrounding the in progress script from writer Jeff Nathanson. The RUSH HOUR 2 and 3 writer is keeping the same overall format from the first four films, which may immediately turn off those looking for something fresh in the series.

All we know for certain at this point is that KON-TIKI directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning are helming the film from Nathanson's script and that Johnny Depp will be reprising his most famous role. These additional details, courtesy of Bleeding Cool, give us an idea of where the next film will be sailing:

  • Penelope Cruz will not be returning as Angelica.  While this could change as the script develops, the female lead is currently described as a woman of science who is accused of being a witch.  She will serve as a love interest for Jack Sparrow but that romance is "one-sided".
  • Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom are not included in the story, so no Will Turner or Elizabeth Swan.  The current young people are scripted as generic subplot fodder and may not make it into the final draft.
  • Barbossa will have a significant role.  The Geoffrey Rush character will have a partner in crime in the film in the form of a ghost.  The spirit will be out for revenge and that is where the DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES title comes into play.
  • Witches play a signficiant part of the story but will differ from what we have seen in the franchise to date.
  • The Bermuda Triangle will play a part in the story.

So, while these details are very specific in nature, they could also be scrapped in the final version. Disney seems to still be planning on beginning production on the film in 2014 and only delaying the film's release to 2016. I would be all for delaying everything, but that would put a crimp in Johnny Depp's upcoming projects. Could Disney sit on a project this big for that long? It remains to be seen. For now, what do you think of these potential details for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES?

Cast Simon Pegg as Sparrows Brother

I saw Simon Pegg in the World's End and he struck me as Jack Sparrow's brother.

Cap'n Hook, please.

So far so good. I like this franchise, it's a lot of fun. I'd love to see Captain Hook show up as a villain someday to take on Jack Sparrow. And if they could get Mickey Rourke to play him, that would be epic!

"The Geoffrey Rush character will have a partner in crime in the film in the form of a ghost."

If it means Barbossa at a pottery wheel while Unchained Melody plays in the background, I'm all for it.

Dear Disney.
You have Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar. These are billion dollar money makers. Step away from Jack Sparrow.

You're damn right I'm interested.

I still can not get over the hate for these movies. Fun summer adventure? What do you expect, a ground breaking work of art? People are rediculiously critical these days.

I like Jack Sparrow but too much of him ruins the movies, it needs to be based on something else, with his character popping up, just like the first one, its the same reason I think a Minion movie might fail, they're funny as backside characters in despicable me but not sure it'll work just focusing on them

"generic subplot fodder "
