Sources confirm to Deadline that Johnny Depp injured his hand over the weekend in Australia, where he is filming Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and is flying back to the States to undergo surgery. Details of the injury weren’t available, but a source says it didn’t happen on the set and won’t delay production of the Disney tentpole, which remains set for release on July 7, 2017. Kon-Tiki helmers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning are directing the fifth film in the lucrative franchise, which is shooting entirely in Australia. TheWrap first reported the news.
