It's been three years since ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, convincing even the most die hard fans of Disney's lucrative franchise that Captain Jack Sparrow needed to take a break. Maybe forever. And yet, these past years have been filled with rumors and casting and almost-casting for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ Like it or not, this film is coming and now it has the young up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites in its drunken, slurred, overlong clutches.

These 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films aren't going anywhere anytime soon as long as Disney has their way -- they're like the 'Saw' franchise of the high seas, Johnny Depp is their Jigsaw, and his eyeliner and ridiculous accent is a trap. But there also need to be some other men in these movies, so Disney is looking for some fresh, young faces to stand next to Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5,' and they've got their eye on names like popular newcomers Ansel Elgort and Brenton Thwaites, as well as a few other up and comers.

Talking 'Kon-Tiki' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' With Directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning

A nominee for Best Foreign Film at the 2013 Academy Awards, Kon-Tiki not only roused audiences with its sweeping tale of Thor Heyerdahl’s journey across the Pacific, but earned the kind of widespread acclaim that could make its directors’ careers. But Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning, the team responsible for the adventure, have been working steadily for years around the world, debuting with the feature Bandidas and subsequently helming commercials and another feature, Max Manus, which established their talent and versatility. That their next project is a massive Hollywood blockbuster – the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film – feels like the icing on a cake they started making almost a decade prior.
We caught up with Ronning and Sandberg via telephone earlier this week to discuss the home video release of Kon-Tiki. In addition to talking about the obstacles – and opportunities – in telling Heyerdahl’s tale, the duo discussed their worldwide professional ambitions, and the prospect of rekindling the essential appeal of the original Pirates film as they connect their personal creativity to its fifth installment.
