Cast member Kaya Scodelario talked about her character in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and teased some elements of the plot of the movie in a recent interview. The movie will mark the return of Orlando Bloom, after skipping the 2011 movie from the franchise.
In an interview with DigitalSpy, Scodelario revealed that the forthcoming movie will have a “lot more” of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” which is the first movie from the franchise “That's what they wanted to bring it back to,” Scodelario said.
The forthcoming movie will go “back to the beginning” and “tie things up,” Scodelario revealed. The actress described the movie as an “epic journey,” which will also lead to “new storylines.”
The main plot of the movie revolves around Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) searching for a legendry artifact known as the Trident of Poseidon. The artifact gives the wielder power over the seas and Jack will need it in order to take on Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), his new enemy in the movie.
Scodelario plays the role of a new character named Carina Smyth in the movie. The actress revealed that her character is an astronomer and an academic. “She's fighting for the right to study at university, because women couldn't at that time,” she said.
Carina will also be searching for the Trident of Poseidon and has a diary full of clues. However, she later meets Jack Sparrow in her journey and he “messes everything up” for her.
The producers of the movie recently announced that Bloom will be reprising his role as Will Turner, who also appeared in the first movie of the franchise. In a previous interview with IGN the actor revealed that the producers wanted to reboot the whole franchise and wanted to focus on the relationship between Will and his son.
Bloom pointed out that his character was the new Davey Jones and joked that his character is mostly at the bottom of the ocean. The villainous character Davey Jones has many tentacles on his face and the role was previously played by Bill Nighy. Bloom said that it would be “fun” to play a character who is “rumbling round the bottom of the ocean” and “get all gnarly.”
