Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Wants Maze Runner Starlet For Key Lead Role

23 January 2015 2:28 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is making more headway on the casting front. Recent reports were showing five women in the running for a co-starring role in the next installment of the franchise, titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but today it looks like they've made big steps forward with regards to narrowing that playing field, and are apparently in talks with Kaya Scodelario. The Maze Runner actress Kaya Scodelario, who was of the five women already rumored for a coveted position alongside Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow, has now, according to Deadline, entered the "early talks" stage with the studio. Prior to today, she was on a list with four others, including French actress Jenna Thiam (The Returned), Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Game of Thrones actress Alexandra Dowling, and Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love, the 2013 remake of Carrie).

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 »

Kaya Scodelairo ("The Maze Runner") is reportedly in early talks to take on the female lead role in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" at Disney Pictures.

Scodelairo was mentioned last month as one of five finalists for the role alongside Lucy Boynton, Alexandra Dowling, Jenna Thiam and Gabriella Wilde.

Hints came last month that Orlando Bloom may return as Will Turner, who took on the mantle of Davy Jones at the end of the third film. They also suggested Thwaites may play the son of Bloom and Knightley's characters.

The Maze Runner star Kaya Scodelario is in early talks to take on the female lead in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. 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). The female lead role is said to be the main love interest for Brenton Thwaites' character, a British soldier who teams up with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).

Javier Bardem is also on board as the villainous Captain Brand, a ghost who seeks revenge against Jack for the death of his brother. Original Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom also hinted last month that he may be back as Will Turner, and that Disney may be eyeing the project as a potential reboot of the entire franchise. »
