Jerry Bruckheimer says Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will begin filming in 2015

06.23.2014

After signing KON-TIKI directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning and aiming for a rumored 2016 release date, hope seemed all but lost that PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES would even happen. With Johnny Depp riding a losing streak at the box office, Disney may have decided to hedge their bets on another several hundred million budget for the fifth film in a franchise already suffering from diminishing returns. But, fear not fans of the PIRATES franchise as it looks like the movie may still be coming.

Super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer was asked about the film's status to which he said it looks likely that it will film, with Johnny Depp in the lead, sometime "after the first of the year". Filming in early 2015 would still keep PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES right in line for a summer 2016 release as previously planned. The original aim was to have the film premiere summer 2015 but obviously that is not going to happen.

Rumors have the plot involving witches, ghosts, and the Bermuda Triangle. Only Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush's Hector Barbossa are slated to return from the prior films. Hopefully they can find something more original that the weak fourth film which was directed by the abyssmal Rob Marshall.

Here's the thing. Jack Sparrow was a breakout character, not the intended lead. On Stranger Tides felt more like a spinoff than an actual sequel. If they want to focus on this character they have to make the adventure as his personal journey and turn Jack into a more serious character.

Nice

You know...they entertain me for what they are. I think Part 4 had the most "issues" in my book because I frankly found the mermaid/pastor story more interesting that Jack's story. If they can get it back to be more focused on Jack, I could like a 5th.

Guess it's only me but I love the POTC movies. Even when they aren't good, they are still fun. Bring on number 5. Everyone who says they should stop making them...no one is forcing you to see them.

Nope I am right there with you. They are fun and a blast to watch for any huge pirate fan. Never let the rage of fanboys and girls crap talking everything behind their keyboards sway you away from something YOU are excited for!

They should have stopped at 3. I know people complain about 2 and 3, but if you watch the whole trilogy together it's actually a lot of fun. The first is obviously the best though. I really hope Depp has another hit soon so he doesn't feel like he has to do this.

They all kind of sucked after the first movie. Movies 2 and 3 got way too complicated for what these movies were. The 4th movie seemed like they were back on track to make this a worthwhile franchise, a standalone tale featuring Jack Sparrow each time. But still it was kind of lacking. If they can make movie 5 what 4 was supposed to be I'd be looking forward to it. But at this point, I have no hope left for this franchise.
