Kaya Scodelario says that Pirates 5 will be "much more like the first film"

I'm still a little amazed that a series of films based upon a theme park ride have managed to be so entertaining, but as the fifth installment of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise is quickly approaching I guess I'd better get used to that. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL introduced us to Captain Jack Sparrow and launched three sequels of varying quality. The most recent film, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, may have made the most money but it also received the worst reviews as people finally began to grow tired of Johnny Depp's Sparrow-schtick.

Kaya Scodelario (THE MAZE RUNNER), who will be appearing in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, spoke with Digital Spy and seemed to indicate that the producers are aware of the complaints that have been leveled at the franchise and are working to get the series back on track:

It [does have] a lot more of the first movie, that's what they wanted to bring it back to, [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.

Scodelario will be playing Carina Smyth, a scientist and an academic fighting for the right to study at university. That fight sets her on a journey which leads to an encounter with Captain Jack Sparrow.

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, which wrapped up production in July, will be bringing Orlando Bloom back to the franchise (but not Keira Knightley) and see Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) face off against the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). 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.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES is set for a July 7, 2017 release.

Jack will become Davey Jones, so he can stay off screen for the next 5 movies, and be the Captain he always wanted to be.

I don't mind wacky. I really liked Pirates 2 and 3.

I sort of liked The Lone Ranger, actually think it would have been improved with werewolves.

I really like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, even the slightly lazy fourth one.

Honestly, I don't see how anything can really make it back to the original. Sparrow's schtick is tired and nothing can change that.

I hope she means more swashbuckling and less supernatural elements (the reason why the sequels failed).

The job of the "straight man" is absolutely thankless: everyone prefers the more colorful characters and you get no credit for the success of the film. Still, thankless or not, the job is necessary. The first movie was structured to make Orlando Bloom the more conventional hero and Johnny Depp, the colorful character he meets to help him save the girl. It was a conventional dynamic but it worked. When Depp became the clear main character in the next films, the series turn into his image: wacky

That's great news considering the first one is far and away the best film of the franchise.

How is this film still 2 years away if it's already completed production? Must be some serious post left to be done.
