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.

Say what you want about the franchise as a whole, but the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies really do have a knack for casting. Incredible actors (and serviceable movie stars) have filled virtually every role in the series' large ensemble, so it's no surprise that the upcoming fifth film is looking to cast a beloved thespian. Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is reportedly in negotiations to join 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' as the latest villain to cross swords with Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow.

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.

And instead of returning to original franchise helmer Gore Verbinski or 'Tides' director Rob Marshall, it was just announced that the job has gone to Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' is going to happen whether we like it or not. Sure, 2011's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' might have been a heaping pile of junk, but it was a heaping pile of junk that made over $1 billion worldwide. What can we say? People just love Johnny Depp. But with director Rob Marshall not returning and original franchise helmsman Gore Verbinski long gone, who will step behind the camera? A few potential names have emerged.
