Pirates of the Caribbean 5, bits and pieces coming out.


Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is getting closer and closer to being made.  We broke earlier this year reporting that the project was a “go” and our beloved Johnny Depp was all set, but haven’t heard too much since.  So, what’s the latest?

With Johnny Depp‘s schedule quickly filling up and a Summer 2015 release date already locked in, Disney is feeling the pressure to hire a director for Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Rob Marshall, who directed the last film, was rumored to return but he’s already working on Into The Woods. That leaves the door open for someone new.  You may recall, “Into the Woods” is the upcoming Disney musical film, who also features Johnny Depp.  He’s a busy guy!

There are reports that Disney will make a decision very soon and have narrowed it down to three choices, all of which are seemingly surprising to most. They are Fredrik Bond (The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman), the team of Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) and Rupert Sanders (Snow White And the Huntsman).  We have our eyes and ears open, and will continue to keep tabs on the latest happenings with the next installment of “Pirates.”
