Skins Star Kaya Scodelario To Play Female Role In Pirates Of The Caribbean 5

Ian West/Pa Archive

After a stellar first instalment, the quality of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies would quickly decline. However, with a haul of over $3.7 billion worldwide in total, Disney aren’t going to let this franchise go the way of a sinking ship any time soon!

The fifth movie is still very much moving ahead then, with Johnny Depp set to reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, and Geoffrey Rush returning as Captain Barbossa. Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner is also rumoured to make a comeback.

New additions include Maleficent star Brenton Thwaites as a British soldier who finds himself working alongside Sparrow, but specific details are sparse, and all we really know for sure is that his character in the movie is named Henry!

There have also been reports of Javier Bardem (Skyfall) being in talks to play Pirates of the Caribbean’s lead villain, »

Mortdecai Review

22 January 2015 9:27 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David Koepp

Cast: Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Munn

Run Time: 107 minutes

Certificate: 12A

Synopsis: An eccentric art dealer Charles Mortdecai (Depp), with the unknowing help of his wife Joanna (Paltrow) must help the British Government find a rare stolen painting, while being supervised by the leader of the case, Alistair Martland (McGregor).

Name the last good Johnny Depp you saw, I bet you it takes a while. In the past couple of years, Johnny Depp’s creditability has proven to not be as resourceful as it used to be. Last year’s Transcendence was a huge disappointment, The Lone Ranger was so bad, Disney spilt up with Jerry Bruckheimer and the less said about The Rum Diary, the better. So Depp is now trying to restore his creditability in new film Mortdecai. This looks like a very promising film, a great cast, »

Kaya Scodelario May Board Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

22 January 2015 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney is taking its time with the upcoming fifth installment of its massively successful Pirates series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, hopefully because the studio recognized the need to reorient the franchise after 2011’s middling On Stranger Tides. We’ve heard from Orlando Bloom that the fivequel may act as a soft reboot, and that many new actors will board the franchise in major parts. Now, we’ve learned that Disney is zeroing in on The Maze Runner actress Kaya Scodelario for the lead female role.

Scodelario, who starred on the popular British series Skins before making the lead to blockbuster fare in last fall’s dystopian Maze Runner, is in early talks for the gig, according to Deadline. No details yet on who she will play outside of that the character will serve as a love interest for recently cast Brenton Thwaites, but Scodelario seems »

The news comes just one month after she was named as one of five finalists for the role, alongside Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love), Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Jenna Thiam (The Returned) and Alexandra Dowling (The Musketeers).

'Beverly Hills Cop 4' Is Not Ready Yet Says Eddie Murphy

15 January 2015 9:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While producer Jerry Bruckheimer has seemed pretty confident in the past that we'll see the mildly-anticipated Beverly Hills Cop 4 released in March 2016, Eddie Murphy himself isn't so confident. In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote his Reggae single 'Oh Jah Jah', the comedian-turned-Rastafari revealed that the script for Beverly Hills Cop 4 isn't ready, and he refuses to make another bad sequel. Asked if he thought the franchise reboot was set to shoot soon, he replied:

"Nah, they still trying to get that script right. I'm not doing a 'Beverly Hills Cop' unless they have a really incredible script. I've read a couple things that look like they can make some paper. But I'm not doing a sh*tty movie just to make some paper. The sh*t got to be right."

Michigan Film Office spokeswoman Michelle Grinnell has a conflicting report, though. Back in June, »
