Disney says filming is now underway in Australia on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. The cast of the action comedy also includes Pirates of the Caribbean alum Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally, and Stephen Graham. Newcomers to the franchise include Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, and Golshifteh Farahani.

Kon-Tiki directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning are at the helm of this fifth film of the Pirates series. Jeff Nathanson (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) wrote the script and Jerry Bruckheimer is producing Dead Men Tell No Tales. The behind-the-scenes crew includes production designer Nigel Phelps, director of photography Paul Cameron, costume designer Penny Rose, visual effects supervisor Gary Brozenich, and special effects supervisor Dan Oliver.

The Plot:

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. 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.
