According to the press release from Walt Disney Studios, the Australian government secured the film’s location with a $21.6 million contribution, but estimates that the film will bring in $100 million in local revenue to Queensland while creating thousands of jobs.

Australian Attorney-General and Minister for the Arts, Senator the Hon George Brandis QC said, “Queensland leads Australia in attracting international film productions in the past financial year and this project is another boost to the screen industry,” said Queensland Premier Campbell Newman, in a statement. “We’re delighted to welcome Disney for filming and we’re incredibly proud to showcase Queensland to the rest of the world.”

The film will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. Originally Pirates 5 was set to be released in 2015, but was put on a delay till July 2017 due to the budget and script.  It looks like things are coming together finally and that Captain Sparrow will return to the big screen soon.
