Look who's back — it's Jack Sparrow. Just when you began to think whether there will be any Pirates of The Caribbean 5, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has confirmed its existence with a picture, which revealed the very first look Johnny Depp aka Jack Sparrow. Jerry, on Tuesday, tweeted the first image from the sets of upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales".

"Captain Jack is back and we're not letting him go." — Bruckheimer captioned the picture, which has Depp covered in ropes while wearing his "signature Jack Sparrow attire and expression." As you can see in the picture, it looks like Sparrow has already invited trouble for himself and is struggling to get out of it.

The movie promises to be different from its predecessors. In this instalment, Captain Salazar, who was trapped in the Bermuda Triangle along with his crew of ghost pirates is searching for old enemy Jack Sparrow and is willing to kill every pirate on the sea during his pursuit.

This is the fifth sequel in the famous Walt Disney Pictures' Pirates franchise and is scheduled to be released on 7 July 2017. The film has had quite a bumpy start so far. After two weeks of shooting in Australia, the production had come to a standstill due to Depp's hand injury for which he had to fly back to the US. But now the "Mortdecai" star has returned to Australia to resume filming again. According to production sources, there are three more months of shooting pending before the film goes into post-production stage.

The film will see Johnny Depp back as Jack Sparrow along with Geoffrey Rush as Hector Barbossa; Kevin McNally as Joshamee Gibbs; Stephen Graham as Scrum and Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar.
