Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 to begin shooting in February 2015

Production on the fifth instalment of Pirates Of The Caribbean will begin early next year, it was confirmed today (October 2nd). 

The franchise has grossed over $3.7 billion at the box office over the course of four films, and a fifth instalment will now be filmed, with production confirmed to start in Queensland, Australia in February of next year. 

The film, which will be titled Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, will once again star Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

The script is written by Catch Me If You Can's Jeff Nathanson, with Norwegian pair  Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg directing. 

The filming will take place in Queensland after producers Disney agreed a deal with the Australian government, who agreed to put just under $20 million towards the film. 

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is due to be released on July 7th, 2017.
