Zac Efron as Jack Sparrow in a Pirates Reboot
Move over High School Musical, Zac may be back! Now that the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot is officially in early development, Disney is seeking a new lead actor. Reportedly, producers are in talks to see Zac Efron as Jack Sparrow in the reboot.
Zac first caught our eye in Disney Channel’s made for tv movie series, High School Musical. The singing, dancing, basketball-playing Troy Bolton was a significant part of many people’s childhood (and young adulthood).
Zac continued on with his successful career and appeared in films like 17 Again, Dirty Grandpa, Baywatch, Neighbors, and The Greatest Showman.
While nothing is official yet, fans are throwing their opinions in the ring. Some feel that Johnny Depp is the ONLY one who could ever play the role of Jack Sparrow. Others feel Zac Efron as Jack Sparrow is quite fitting.
It’s been 3 years since Disney released Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. As of now, we have not heard whether or not other actors will reprise their roles or if we can expect an entirely new cast. We do know, however, that Depp will not be returning as Captain Jack.
We are still waiting to hear more on the storyline as well, but it has been noted that screenwriter Ted Elliott (The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, On Stranger Tides) and Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) are tasked with developing a “new” Pirates adventure.
