The movie masterminds who brought the film chronicling Thor Heyerdal's 1947 Pacific-crossing adventure to the big screen are set to hit the high seas again for the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean blockbuster.

Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg have boarded the Disney franchise for a new movie that is slated to hit cinemas in July, 2015.

The Norweigan duo reportedly beat out Snow White & The Huntsman's Rupert Sanders for the job of directing Johnny Depp.

Action adventure movie Kon-Tiki, about legendary explorer Heyerdal's bid to cross the Pacific Ocean on a wooden raft, landed Ronning and Sandberg Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Film.
