Brenton Thwaites Open to a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Return

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was the fifth installment of the hit franchise. The film saw the introduction of Henry Turner played by Brenton Thwaites, and while the film ended with his character freeing his father, Will Turner, a post-credit scene featuring Davy Jones has left fans clamoring for more.

While speaking with the Cosmic Circus at Motor City Comic Con, Thwaites revealed that he would certainly be open to returning for a sixth film, whether or not it’s a follow-up to his last movie or being a part of the Margot Robbie-led spin-off, three projects are currently in development at Disney.

“Oh, that’ll be interesting…that’ll be interesting. Yeah, I think he could play! I think there’s a way to fit him in there if it’s the right time period, right? If they… you know if they’re 100 years before or after, certainly not. But if it’s the right thing, and they want me in there, I’ll be there.” When asked, Brenton Thwaites pitched his perfect sixth Pirates movie, “My dream cast for a number six would be the same cast as number five. (laughs) But you know it’s a cool property, and that world has so much excitement to it. I think whoever does number six is just gonna knock it out of the park. It’s gonna be awesome.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is one of the most financially successful of all time, led by Johnny Depp’s iconic Jack Sparrow, alongside Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swan, and Sparrow’s frenemy, Geoffrey Rush’s Hector Barbosa. The five films have grossed over $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office. The last movie Dead Men Tell No Tales ended up making $794.1M worldwide for the studio, dominating the Memorial Day weekend in 2017.
