It seems things are not going well for the cast and production team of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. According to media reports, Johnny Depp, one of the leads in the movie, has injured his hand to the extent that it will require surgery.

No details have been given on the accident on what exactly happened to the star, but reports seem to have their own versions of where the accident occurred. According to Variety's article about the matter says that Johnny Depp was not working at the time of the incident, but The Hollywood Reporter says that he was on set at the time.

The movie is currently filming on Australia's Gold Coast, and has been doing so for the last few weeks.

Over the last weekend too, the film was first interrupted when a man wearing pirate regalia came on to the set waving a knife around.

Good news however is, Johnny Depp's injury is not going to throw the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales off of its schedule. The actor will be flying back to the United States to get surgery on his hand, but the production will continue to shoot and work around Depp's absence by working on other material. Disney has no plans to change the feature's release date, which isn't too surprising given that the film is still more than two years away from hitting theaters. 

Johnny Depp only recently got married at 51 to Amber Heard. He returns as Captain Jack Sparrow, though this new sequel once again finds him facing off against a brand new antagonist. Javier Bardem will be playing the role of Captain Salazar, an old nemesis of Captain Jack's who wants to see the death of every single pirate at sea.
