We’ve got our first look at Johnny Depp back in the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!
Producer extraordinaire Jerry Bruckheimer took to his social media pages to post the above photo and added the following caption, “Captain Jack is back and we’re not letting him go.”
We love the photo... And is it us, or do we note a tinge of grey in the pirate’s beard?!
The franchise should get a serious shot in the arm with the hiring of directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning -- their Kon-Tiki is a modern sea-set classic. And the fact that Javier Bardem is our villain, well, that only adds to the anticipation.
Young stars Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) and Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) have joined the cast and Geoffrey Rush returns as Barbossa. Stephen Graham’s back as Scrum and so too is Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs. We also hear that Keith Richards will reprise his role as Captain’s Jack dad!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales lands in theaters July 7, 2017. See how it all got started and watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl online.
