The fifth installment of the popular fantasy adventure film series “Pirates of the Caribbean” is already being produced with several location shots including Puerto Rico and New Orleans, which both have ideal settings that are essential for the movie’s scenes, according to Deadline. It was announced that Norwegian directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning would be directing the film.

The producer of the films, Jerry Bruckheimer, has given few clues as to which villains and major creatures would be shown in the upcoming film. But we do know the title of the latest installment: “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”

According to Hallels, Bruckheimer has suggested that the latest installment would be a straight-up pirate movie but without a kraken-like monster. This suggests that the following films will steer away from monsters chasing Jack Sparrow and his company.

Penelope Cruz, who portrayed the character of Angelica, will not be appearing in the fifth installment. There will also be fewer appearances by Elizabeth and Will whose stories seem to have been resolved previously. The plot could revolve around Jack following Captain Teague’s words about getting the Trident.

The most likely release date for “Dead Men Tell No Tales” is July 7, 2017, Indie Wire reported. “Dead Men Tell No Tales” will follow the trend that started when Captain Jack Sparrow charmed everyone’s hearts and attention after the first film, “Curse of the Black Pearl.” Bruckheimer also said that the film would still have its share of magic, wit, and craftiness, which is what “Pirates” is all about.

The next film will allegedly start with a pirate wedding. However, Bruckheimer has not given the names of the people who are getting married. With a scheduled premiere so far away, many plot details and other plans could still be in the works. It could take at least two more years for fans to get any specific details about the movie.

Johnny Depp has taken a break from filming Whitey Bulger crime drama Black Mass to take part in secret recording sessions with Paul McCartney, Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
Speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, guitarist Perry (63) said: “It’s the great ego leveller. I was in the studio with Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, playing guitar, and the three of us are looking at each other like, hey, we’re sitting here with Paul McCartney! And we’re all looking at each other like open-mouthed kids.

“At 72 he can still hit all those notes. However, the Aerosmith member refused to disclose any more details. “It’s a project that we’re keeping under wraps for now.”

Depp joined Aerosmith on stage at their gig in Mansfield, Massachusetts to play guitar last Wednesday night. He jammed along with the band’s 1974 hit, Train Kept a Rollin’, which he also played with the band at a 2012 show at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.

The actor is currently filming Black Mass, a new drama about Boston-Irish crime boss Whitey Bulger, which is set for release next year.

The movie also stars Adam Scott, Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, Jesse Plemons, Kevin Bacon, Sienna Miller and Peter Sarsgaard.



Johnny Depp surprised Aerosmith fans on Wednesday night when he strapped on his guitar to join the US rockers for their Boston gig.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star took time off from filming Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass to showcase his musicianship at the Xfinity Center.

Frontman Steven Tyler, from Massachusetts, introduced his high profile guest to the crowd, exclaiming: “Yo! Bringing out on stage my good friend, Mr Johnny Depp!”

The 51-year-old actor played guitar and performed an extended solo on the band’s hit song “Train Kept A-Rollin”, from their 2012 album Music From Another Dimension!.

His fiancée Amber Heard was watching the gig backstage, reports suggest.

Depp features on the studio version of “Trains Kept A-Rollin” and joined Aerosmith for a series of live shows during the year of its release.


Johnny participated to a new single from Paul McCartney “Early Days”. He appears very shortly into the video itself but here I got few caps and one bts picture from it.

The time has come for some serious Pirates of the Caribbean movie without the ugly looking demonic monsters sailing in the sea.

While speaking with entertainment website the Collider, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said the upcoming pirates franchise will be a straight pirate movie without any Kraken creature.

To the question, “will there be any demonic monsters in Pirates 5?” Bruckheimer answered:
“No, no. I think we’re back to more of a straight pirates movie this time.”

When asked about the possibility of featuring monster-like creatures in the upcoming movie, he simply said “Not in the script I read recently.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, won millions of hearts with Johnny Depp’s flawless performance as captain Jack Sparrow.

But later, the movie went off track by featuring a slew of mythical sea monsters to grab major box office collections.

While many fans loved the progress of the fantasy adventure franchise, some argued that both Depp and the movies were losing their thrill and sheen with each sequel.

Walt Disney’s latest pirate sequel is slated for a 2016 premiere and is titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

The movie will be directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandburg. Rønning earned accolades for his Norwegian sea expedition movie Kon-Tiki.

Depp and Geoffrey Rush will reprise their roles as Captain Jack Sparrow and Barbossa respectively.
