Young Hollywood Gunning For Henry Role in Pirates 5
Disney is gearing up to find a fresh face for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie and Young Hollywood Gunning For Henry Role in Pirates 5!
It’s already been revealed that production set to begin early next year in Australia under the direction of Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. And Javier Bardem is in talks to play the film’s villain, a Ghost Pirate, but now there is a new young lead named Henry that is looking for a fresh young man to be the heartthrob for the upcoming Johnny Depp film. See, Disney is again looking to add some young blood to the upcoming fifth installment.
There is already a short list of young men that Hollywood is eyeing for the role of Henry. Here is what CelebNMusic247.com has found out via Deadline:
Here is the short list of actors Disney is already looking at for the role of Henry in Pirates of the Caribbean 5 include Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Taron Egerton (The Secret Service), George Mackay (Pride), Brenton Thwaites (The Giver), and Sam Keeley (In the Heart of the Sea). Now “courted to test” isn’t the strongest of language so there’s no guarantee that any of these actors will be in serious contention to take on the role, but this shortlist should give us some idea of what kind of actor they’re looking at for the part.
Elgort is the most well-known of the bunch, but they’re all stars on the rise. He had a solid year with Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, and Men, Women & Children, and he’s proven to be a formidable acting talent. Thwaites also had a couple of high-profile roles this year in Maleficent and The Giver, and Egerton is poised to breakout as the young lead of Matthew Vaughn’s James Bond-esque The Secret Service opposite Colin Firth.
Again, there’s no guarantee that one of these five actors will end up joining the Pirates franchise, but consider this a preview of the kind of character that will appear opposite Johnny Depp in Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is slated to open on July 7, 2017.
