Re: Pirates of the Carribean 6 - News, rumors, etc.

EXCLUSIVE: Disney is exploring a reboot of its billion dollar Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The studio has met with the writing team of Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and they are in early talks to write the script. Reese & Wernick are the writers behind the first two Deadpool blockbusters, and before that wrote Zombieland and its sequel, and 6 Underground, the action film that Michael Bay is directing for Netflix with Ryan Reynolds starring.

Jerry Bruckheimer will continue to captain the ship as producer on Pirates of the Caribbean, but at this point it is too early to say who else might be back and that includes Johnny Depp, who has channeled Rolling Stones’ rogue Keith Richard in playing Jack Sparrow through the first five films. It is not surprising the studio will try to breathe new pirate life into the franchise, as the first five films grossed north of $4.5 billion over 14 years.

Jack Sparrow falls into a whirlpool time tunnel and comes out in 2018 in Somalia. Let the zaniness begin!

Jack Sparrow water skiing off the back of the Black Pearl jumps a shark.

A "reimagining" set in the 1980's where Jack Sparrow is a video pirate.

Pirates of the Caribbean set to reboot without Johnny Depp

The Pirates of the Caribbean movie series is set to take a new direction without Johnny Depp reprising his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

When asked if the franchise can "survive without Johnny Depp", Disney's production chief Sean Bailey revealed there is an opportunity for the next film to be revamped.

"We want to bring in a new energy and vitality," Bailey told The Hollywood Reporter.

Depp played the drunk and witty pirate in five films across 15 years.

The studio has brought in Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to execute the reimagined vision.

"I love the movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the pants - and that's what I've tasked them with."

The 55-year-old's Captain Jack Sparrow was the main star of the first five films, released between 2003 and 2017.

The 55-year-old's Captain Jack Sparrow was the main star of the first five films, released between 2003 and 2017.

Speaking with the Daily Mail in October, Pirates of the Caribbean writer Stuart Beattie said Depp's brilliance as Sparrow helped grow his career.

"He's had a great run," says Beattie.

"I think Jack Sparrow will be [Depp's] legacy. It's the only character he's played five times, it's the character he dresses up in to visit children in hospitals, and it's what he'll be remembered for.

"It's been great for us, so I'm just very, very happy about it."

Beattie first came up with the concept in 1993 and the first film took 10 years to be made.

The first 'Pirates' film, The Curse of the Black Pearl, was released in 2003, while the most recent movie in the franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales, hit the big screens in 2015.

It will be weird watching a Pirates movie without Depp but the last few movies were dreadful so I don't mind a different direction as long as they avoid using/creating another character similar to Sparrow.

I'm surprised by this. Having just come back from Disney with the kids, they've fully integrated Depp into the Pirates ride, and had him walking around signing autographs and things. I think it's a mistake. They should keep him but not make him the focus...

Glad to move on from Depp, I think they should have moved on 1 or 2 movies ago.

I still don't know why they teased Davy Jones coming back at the end of the last film.

I actually grew tired of Jack Sparrow. I'm also glad they are moving on from the character.

The only good "Pirates" movie was the first. So, good riddance.

Re: Pirates of the Carribean 6 - News, rumors, etc.

I wonder how Guy Ritchie keeps getting work. The dude made a couple good low budget flicks early in his career and has made mostly mediocre dreck since then. Heís been given the talent and the money for his movies and still canít pull out anything decent.
