Disney’s Next Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie Will Be A Total Reboot, Apparently

NEWS

Very little has been revealed by way of specifics over the last couple of years. The only other tangible tidbit came last year from Craig Mazin (“The Last of Us”),¬†who pitched a “weird” movie in the “Pirates” universe that he worked on with Elliott. But that’s just one of several pitches that have entered development in the years since “Dead Men Tell No Tales” hit theaters. Several have come and gone with nothing actually going the distance as of yet.

At one point, Margot Robbie (“Barbie”) was attached to star in a potential “Pirates” movie that eventually went by the wayside. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (“Deadpool”) were also briefly attached to write a film in the franchise before they departed. There’s also the Johnny Depp drama that flared up when his messy legal troubles with his ex-wife Amber Heard became very public. Depp has anchored every entry in the series up to this point, but he’s not the star he once was, to put it lightly.

In any event, Disney has every motivation to continue the franchise in some way, shape, or form. “Curse of the Black Pearl” was an unexpected hit that spawned a $4.5 billion franchise. While the sequels were exceedingly expensive, these movies are tremendously popular. If Disney can crack the right story with the right cast, there is no reason to think audiences won’t show up.

The new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie does not currently have a release date.
