'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' full title revealed

The title of the upcoming fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean film has been revealed.

The follow-up to 2011's On Stranger Tides has been named Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, co-directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg told This Is Infamous. "Dead men tell no tales" is a well-known line from the Pirates Of The Caribbean ride at Disneyland, California and other Disney theme parks.

Oscar-nominated Norwegian duo Rønning and Sandberg were hired to direct the new Pirates movie in May and shooting is due to begin in January next year (2014) for a July 2015 release. The film's script is being written by Jeff Nathanson, whose previous screenwriting credits include Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3 and Catch Me If You Can.

Johnny Depp will be back for his fifth appearance as Captain Jack Sparrow, a character he famously based on Keith Richards, who endorsed Depp's performance by playing Sparrow's father, Captain Teague, in the two most recent Pirates movies.

Meanwhile, it's been reported that Orlando Bloom could be returning to the franchise after he sat out On Stranger Tides. The four previous movies have grossed a collective $3.7 billion (£2.3 billion) worldwide, making Pirates Of The Caribbean the fifth biggest film franchise ever.
