Brenton Thwaites joins Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean 5?

21 November 2014 1:55 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Brenton Thwaites is reportedly nearing a deal to join Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Thwaites is being considered to take on the role of British soldier Henry, a character described by The Hollywood Reporter as one of the sequel's male leads.

The Fault in Our Stars' Ansel Elgort and Sunshine on Leith actor George Mackay were previously reported to be in contention to play Henry.

The character serves as a replacement for Orlando Bloom's swashbuckling hero Will Turner, following Bloom's departure from the franchise.

Thwaites had two high-profile films out this year, as he played Prince Phillip in Disney's Maleficent and the heroic Jonas in The Giver.

Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush are expected to reprise their roles as the eccentric pirate Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl's mutinous captain Hector Barbossa, respectively. Javier Bardem is in talks to play a new villain. »

Brenton Thwaites circles Pirates of the Caribbean 5

21 November 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

By this point, we’ve come to expect that every Pirates of the Caribbean movie needs a milquetoast hero at its center, to balance out the quirkiness of Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow. Orlando Bloom fit that mold in the first three films, and was replaced by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘s Sam Claflin in the fourth film, and now it looks like The Giver and Maleficent actor Brenton Thwaites is in talks for Pirates 5

The news comes from TheWrap, who state that Thwaites is circling the role of a British soldier named Henry. No other details are given, but they do affirm that Javier Bardem is in talks to play the villain. Christoph Waltz was in the running for a while, but dropped out to focus on Bond 24 instead.

21 November 2014 11:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casting on the billion dollar swashbuckling series is getting well underway, with Maleficent‘s Brenton Thwaites now in Disney’s crosshairs for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Courtesy of The Wrap, who revealed the scoop exclusively, it seems the studio are looking to secure his fresh young presence to steer the flailing franchise into more lucrative waters.

Previous reports indicated that Thwaites was on a shortlist of up-and-coming actors in contention for the sought-after role. Alongside the young Aussie, Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Mitchell Hope, George Mackay, and Sam Keeley were all thought to be competing for the role of British soldier Henry.

After an appearance this year as the Prince in Sleeping Beauty reboot, Maleficent, and stellar turns in Oculus and The Giver, there’s no reason to doubt the rising star can’t tackle the grit of such a colossal franchise. And now that »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Snags Brenton Thwaites, Possibly Javier Bardem

21 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just like Jack Sparrow's liver, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise takes a licking and keeps on ticking. The cast is slowly coming together for the fifth movie in the series, and its latest addition seems to be Brenton Thwaites. The young Aussie actor ("The Giver," "Maleficent," the upcoming "Son of a Gun") is reportedly in talks to join the cast as a British soldier named Henry. If he signs on the dotted line, he'll be joining Johnny Depp as Sparrow - or is it Sparrow as Johnny Depp? It's hard to tell the difference any more, what with all the accessories and drunken hijinks.

We're way more excited for the rumor Javier Bardem will join the gang as the villain of the movie, a vengeful ghost named Captain Brand. Bardem is no stranger to creepy characters; he won an Oscar for his performance as Anton Chigurh in "No Country for Old Men, »

Christoph Waltz To Expect Mister Bond In 2015?

15 November 2014 1:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Javier Bardem’s turn as a Bond villain in Skyfall was icier than a naked Twister party in an igloo. How do you follow that performance? By casting diminutive screen psychopath Christoph Waltz of course, if recent reports are anything to go by. Variety have acquired this story from the Twitter feed of Daily Mail foghorner Baz Bamigboye, so while we can take it with a mini-avalanche of salt, we can at least comment on it as a plausible decision. Waltz fits the Daniel Craig era formula of recent years of casting a sinister European as adversary. If you haven’t seen him before, I’d describe him as a sort of sinister cousin of Jools Holland.  I doubt anyone would object if his involvement was confirmed.

Bamigboye has also Tweeted the locations for Bond 24 as Mexico, Morocco, Austria, Italy and London, so as ever Eon Productions will be »

Is Christoph Waltz The Next Great Bond Villain?

13 November 2014 4:00 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It would appear that the filmmakers behind the James Bond franchise have begun using the Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner pool of the last few years to help them find an appropriate villain. For Skyfall, Sam Mendes turned to Javier Bardem - who took home the aforementioned prize for his turn in the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men - and now it's being reported that the upcoming Bond 24 is looking to bring on two-time Academy Award winner Christopher Waltz to square off against 007. The news comes from The Daily Mail, which says that the Django Unchained star has joined the project - but notes that there is a shade of mystery regarding exactly what role he is playing. One inside source told the British newspaper that Waltz is playing a "nemesis of sorts" -which makes us naturally think "villain" - but other insiders were a bit more »
