Witches And Ghosts In “Pirates Of The Caribbean 5”

September 12, 2013

Some leaked script details reveal that the franchise is heading back into the supernatural realm with PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

Bleeding Cool got their hands on the screenplay for the film and they reveal that Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) will be fighting a coven of witches.

The new female lead will trigger the plot: “There’s going to be a new female lead, a sparring partner for Jack Sparrow,” explains the site. “She’s nothing like him, mind you – despite being suspected of witchcraft, she’s actually a woman of science. Expect some sexual chemistry, but also expect it to be a touch one sided…

As for witches, they’re central to whole conceit,” they continue. “There are some other, actual witches involved. If Tia Dalma, from the second and third films, makes another appearance, it’s a minor one but it’ll be very easy to leave her out. These new witches have somewhat less of a hoodoo flavouring.

Lastly, they reveal that the title is based on a ghost. “Keeping up the supernatural flavour, there’s also going to be a ghost in a leading role. It’s this character, a former member of the British military now sided with Barbossa on a revenge mission, that gives the film its title.

The sequel’s release date was recently delayed, which you can read about here.
