Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally and Martin Klebba are all returning for another doze of pirate adventure. However, the biggest "Pirate" comeback is Orlando Bloom, who will reprise his role as Will Turner.

Meanwhile, Depp has recently talked about his acting career and how he landed the role of Sparrow during an interview with Collider.

"It probably lasted about 37 seconds," Depp said about his meeting with Disney executives regarding Sparrow's role, before adding, "Originally, he was written as a swashbuckler who comes in and saves the day..."

"I toyed with the idea of what it might be like to live with some species of heatstroke that maybe didn't go away all that quickly," he continued. "So, to be able to keep things like that in my head, when I'm going to do a film for Disney, I'd been through the ringer. That was like infiltrating the enemy camp. I wasn't able to stop smiling. So, that's how the character was born, and that's how I almost got fired."

Depp has already finished filming his scenes and "Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" is slated to be released on May 26, 2017 in Australia and the U.S., while "Star Wars: Episode VIII" was moved to Dec. 15, 2017.
