Jack Sparrow Meets Thor Heyerdahl In Pirates Of The Caribbean 5
Johnny Depp has already been confirmed to return as Captain Jack Sparrow for “Pirates of the Caribbean 5”, Terry Rossio has already written the script [albeit without his usual writing partner Ted Elliott], Jerry Bruckheimer is producing and now the film finally has a director – or rather, two of them – as it was announced that Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg would be directing the fifth installment in the popular pirate film franchise. Ronning and Sandberg directed this year’s Academy Award-nominated film “Kon Tiki” which dramatized the 1947 Pacific Ocean trek of Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl to prove that the South Seas islands could be colonized by South American peoples. Will the shark eat the parrot in this film too?
“Pirates of the Caribbean 5” is currently scheduled for a July 10, 2015 release.
