Johnny Depp is back in Australia to continue filming “Pirates of the Caribbean 5.” According to a new report, Depp’s character in the movie will on a ship that first introduced Captain Jack Sparrow in the first movie from the franchise.
A single-mast ship that is supposedly the former Rainbow Gypsy has docked at the Raby Bay Harbor in Cleveland, Australia, where filming for the movie is currently taking place. According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald, the ship is the same one that was sinking when the viewers first saw Jack Sparrow land on shore on a boat in the first movie. The ship is said to play a “lead role” in the movie.
The ship may be used to film a scene with Depp at Raby Bay, as the actor was recently spotted at the same location wearing the costume of his new movie. According to a report by the Herald Sun, the actor spent some time speaking to the fans who had come to the set, and he reportedly said, “I love it” when he was asked how he feels about the state of Queensland, Australia.
Depp may soon film scenes with fellow cast member Orlando Bloom, who will reprise his role as Will Turner in the movie. Bloom is also now in Australia, and according to a report by the Gold Coast Bulletin, the actor was spotted at a coffee shop reading the script of “Pirates of the Caribbean 5.”
Bloom is reportedly frequenting the Elk Espresson in Broadbeach, a coffee shop he is said to drop into twice a day. The actor apparently took his son along with him to the coffee shop and played with him for a while before starting to read his movie script while the nanny took care of the boy.
“Pirates of the Caribbean 5” is slated to be released on July 7, 2017, in the U.S. Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are directing. The movie is one of the most highly anticipated upcoming films, and Ronning shared this picture on his official Instagram account, which shows excited fans meeting Depp near the set of the movie.
