The hot role to be had at Disney right now is Henry in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Here are the actors who I’m hearing are being courted to test for the dashing young lead (others might be added): Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), George Mackay (Pride) and Brenton Thwaites (The Giver, Maleficent), Mitchell Hope (Descendants‘), Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars) and Sam Keeley (In The Heart Of The Sea). Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are directing for Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The studio has set a July 7, 2017, release date.
