Kaya Scodelario has joined the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer announced on Twitter that Scodelario would star in the fifth instalment of the film series.

"Pleased to announce that we cast Kaya Scodelario for the 5th Pirates of the Caribbean. Talented young actor from Skins & The Maze Runner," he wrote.

Scodelario will star opposite Johnny Depp and Brenton Thwaites, with Orlando Bloom in talks to reprise his role of Will Turner.

Javier Bardem is rumoured to be involved as the film's villain, while Keira Knightley has ruled out an appearance.

Scodelario has previously appeared in films including The Maze Runner and Spike Island. She is also known for her role of Effy Stonem in Skins.

Filming for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will take place in Australia in February, with a release date set for July 7, 2017.
