Johnny Depp is returning to the U.S. for surgery after injuring his hand over the weekend while in Australia for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

EW confirmed that Depp was not injured on set or during filming and that production is expected to be “minimally impacted” by the incident.

In other Pirates 5 news, local police recently arrested a man dressed as a pirate who was allegedly wielding a knife at security guards while trying to storm the film’s set.

The film, which began shooting in Queensland, Australia, last month, is set for a July 7, 2017 release.
