Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will be the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. This will follow On Stranger Tides. Popularly addressed as Pirates of the Caribbean 5, it will be officially released as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. In France, it will be called Pirates of the Caribbean: The Revenge of Salazar.
The Plot Summary
The plot will focus on Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) being pursued by his old rival, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). Salazar, a powerful ghost pirate, has escaped the Devil?s Triangle and is bent on killing every pirate at sea. Jack Sparrow needs to defeat Salazar and to help him do this, he would need the Trident of Poseidon. This would grant him total control over the seas and gives him the best chance of defeating his rival. The plot was available through IGN.
This threat, though, is not what our favorite pirates in the Caribbean are facing. Depp?s marriage woes have become public. The results of which were some nagging issues in the production.
The Depp Situation
Depp?s personal life has spilled over the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 set. His scandalous divorce with then wife Amber Heard is thought to cause him to snap while in production. Reports came that he had cut his finger up in rage while high on alcohol and ecstasy. According to Yahoo, there were even reports that the movie?s production has been delayed by four weeks.
This led some to speculate that Orlando Bloom will play as the lead character as alluded by MobileNApps. This is because Depp could not fulfill his obligations amidst a personal crisis. Others even speculated that Jack Sparrow would be killed off just for the film to have a go.
Now, it looks like the filming is over and the producers are on to scoring. It looks like it is a go.
