There is a lot of speculation, and not much solidified, about the newest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. As of now, Johnny Depp hasn’t even signed on to reprise the famed ‘Jack Sparrow’ role that really makes the films work. But a few things are starting to come together for the future project.
Jeff Nathanson, screenwriter of Catch Me If You Can, will join as the writer and Jerry Bruckheimer will return as producer. I’d be curious to know if any writing has occurred yet, though, since the full slate of characters isn’t even known. Regardless, having those two on the team are a great start.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is set to release July 10, 2015. As more info on the flick comes through, we’ll let you know. But I’d love to know your thoughts…
Could you have a Pirates of the Caribbean movie without Johnny Depp on board?
