Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Set to Film in January 2015

The fifth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean”  was rumored to be entitled “Dead Men Tell No Tales.” It was finally setting its record straight as it starts filming in January 2015. It was given the promising signal when award-winning producer Jerry Bruckheimer finally gave a direct update on the creation of the most popular pirate movie. Read on to learn more about “Pirates of the Caribbean 5.”

Bruckheimer was promoting the rest of his projects in Monte Carlo Television Festival when he revealed what every Captain Jack Sparrow fanatic was waiting for. He expressed without much pretense about Disney’s big franchise, to which they are hoping to start as soon as 2015 comes.


We are hoping to start Pirates after the first of the year. We are getting closer and closer. We are close on the screenplay. We’re close with Disney, and with Johnny (Depp) who is enthused, so hopefully we’ll get it done,” said Bruckheimer in the Global Dispatch report.

Initially, the movie was set to be released in 2015, but it seemed that the production encountered some difficulties in the completion of the story. This led to some doubts on the creation of the fifth addition of the movie franchise.

In spite of all the negativities, “Kon-Tiki” creators Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still appointed and fixed to direct it. In addition to that, they told Deadline about the shoot taking place in Puerto Rico and New Orleans.

Apart from Johnny Depp returning as the hilariously egocentric pirate, Captain Jack, Geoffrey Rush and Penelope Cruz are returning to the high seas with the Christoph Waltz cast as the main villains. Jack’s father will also be returning with the powerful casting of rock star Keith Richards.

In a report from The Epoch Times, Johnny Depp has not been doing well lately in the movies he released (i.e., “Transcendence,” “The Lone Ranger”). A number of his new movies received a handful of disappointed critiques. Nonetheless, he maintains his confidence with Disney and continues to look forward for the start of the production of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
