Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a 2017 American fantasy swashbuckler film, and the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The film will be directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg from a script by Jeff Nathanson, with Jerry Bruckheimer serving again as producer. The film stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally and Orlando Bloom returning as Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, Joshamee Gibbs, and Will Turner, respectively, as well as Brenton Thwaites as Henry, Kaya Scodelario as Carina Smyth, and Javier Bardem as the film's villain, Captain Salazar. 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.
