Dead men may not tell any tales, but living ones love to leak casting rumors.
Variety reports that Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Jenna Thiam (The Returned), Gabriella Wilde (Carrie), Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) and Alexandra Dowling (Hammer of the Gods) have made the shortlist of actresses considered to Johnny Depp in Disney's fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film.
The rumor is the studio was waiting until the role of Henry was cast before testing these actresses, who will most likely play opposite him as a love interest. Now that Brenton Thwaites has landed the role, Disney is ready to cast.
In addition to series veteran Depp and newcomer Thwaites, the new entry will feature Javier Bardem as the villain. Helmed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will sail on July 7, 2017.
