‘The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario in Talks for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Lead

‘Kaya Scodelario may be heading from the deserts of The Scorch Trials to the high seas. Deadline is reporting that the Maze Runner actress is in early talks for the female lead in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Kaya’s potential character could possibly be a love interest for the British soldier Henry, who will be played by Brenton Thwaites (The Giver). Even if that’s true, we’re sure she’ll still be as badass as The Maze Runner‘s Teresa if previous POTC female leads Elizabeth Swann and Tia Dalma/Calypso are anything to go by.

We’ll keep you posted as this news develops. Here’s hoping Kaya will indeed be setting sail with Johnny Depp and Co. for Dead Men Tell No Tales! The movie is set to hit theaters in 2017.
