Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is an upcoming American fantasy swashbuckler film, and the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbeanfilm series. The film was directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg from a script by Jeff Nathanson, with Jerry Bruckheimer serving again as producer.Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom and Kevin McNally returned to star as Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, Will Turner and Joshamee Gibbs, respectively. The film also stars Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, Brenton Thwaites as Henry, and Kaya Scodelario as Carina Smyth.
Pre-production for the film started shortly before the fourth installment, On Stranger Tides, was released in early 2011, with Terry Rossio writing a script for the film. In early 2013, Jeff Nathanson was hired to write a new script, with Depp being involved in Nathanson’s writing process. Initially planned for a 2015 release, the film was delayed to 2016 and then to 2017, due to script and budget issues. Principal photography started in Australia in February 2015, after the Australian government offered Disney $20 million of tax incentives, and ended in July 2015. It is set to be released in conventional, Disney Digital 3-D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D formats on May 26, 2017.
