Brenton Thwaites Nabs Key ‘Pirates 5’ Role

written by Tiffany XXI.XI

Brenton Thwaites has nabbed a key role in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Disney’s latest Jack Sparrow adventure.

Johnny Depp is back as Jack Sparrow, as is Geoffrey Rush, playing Barbosa, in the big tentpole that will shoot for five months next year in Australia.

Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are directing.

Thwaites, who is in final negotiations, will play anOrlando Bloom/Will Turner equivalent in the new movie. The character’s name is Henry, and he’s a British soldier.

Javier Bardem is in final negotiations to be the movie’s villain, a ghost captain who blames Sparrow for the death of his brother and is searching for a supernatural object to aid him in revenge.

Pirates 5 is a nice way to cap off a busy year for Thwaites. The actor played the prince role in Disney’s Maleficent and he also starred in indie sci-fi movie The Signal and the high-profile YA adaptation of The Giver. He also wrapped Summit’s Gods of Egypt, Alex Proyas’ upcoming mythological adventure that also stars Gerard Butler.
