Johnny Depp's Hand Injury Prolongs Delays on Walt Disney Pictures' Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

It'll be a bit longer before Captain Jack Sparrow sails the high seas.
According to Australian media reports, production on Walt Disney Pictures' Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is expected resume around April 15 on Australia's Gold Coast, . Filming shut down for several weeks after Johnny Depp flew to the U.S. March 11 in order to have hand surgery.
Cameras continued to roll during scenes in which Depp's character do not appear. The delay was originally expected to last two weeks, as producers believed that the 51-year-old actor's hand injury would have a "minimal impact" on the shoot. However, that break has now extended to at least four weeks after Depp needed a pin inserted in a finger. Media reports now say around 200 crewmembers were informed that they will not work for the next two weeks
