Some rumored plot details have leaked for the now delayed, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5
Hey Yo, Draven here.
Just yesterday we got word that Disney had moved PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 out of its July 2015 release date. The reason reportedly is due to script issues (although that didn’t stop the last few films) and so they are going back to the drawing board to improve the script before they decide to drop $250 million filming it.
Now, Bleeding Cool thinks they know what the original script was all about. They have some new plot information that may or may not change when they go back to work on the script.
It sounds like this fifth film is going to revolve a lot around witches, much like the last one revolved around mermaids. There is going to be a new female lead, she will be a scientist (or “a woman of science”) who is suspected of witchcraft. Bleeding Cool also states that there is much more to her character, but that it is too spoilery to reveal.
Apparently, there is also going to be a ghost in a major role, who is teamed up with Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) on a revenge mission. The rumored subtitle is DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES and this character is where it would earn that title.
There are also two more characters that Bleeding Cool reports are, “pure subplot fodder”. These would be similar the roles that Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom played in the first three films and the ones played by Sam Claflin and Astrid Berges-Frisbey in the fourth film. These types of roles have been the weakest element of the series to date, and it is a little disappointing to see that they are still trying to shoehorn these roles into the film.
The last bit here might be a little spoilery, but the film reportedly starts with a wedding that doesn’t go as planned and ends with a take on the Bermuda Triangle mystery. That Bermuda Triangle part actually sounds pretty cool but so did The Fountain of Youth in the last film and they completely botched that.
It sounds exactly like the same formula as the previous films, with a few new characters and actors plugged in. I am not particularly excited for this fifth adventure and hope that they decide to try some new things when they go back and try to improve the script but I don’t have my hopes up. They ruined a great cast with the last film, and it is hard to see this film dramatically improving enough on the last one for me to care about it.
What do you guys think? Does this encourage you at all to pay attention to this film?
