I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve had my fill of Captain Jack Sparrow. As such, I’m open to what new stories lie ahead as Disney opens its doors to screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for a Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise reboot.
That’s the word now over at Deadline as Jerry Bruckheimer is also reportedly coming aboard to produce another swashbuckling tale with other potential new characters to center on. Pirates Of The Caribbean launched in 2003 as the first of five films that have seen Johnny Depp as its centerpiece opposite Orlando Bloom, Kiera Knightley, Geoffrey Rush, Chow Yun-Fat, Ian McShane, Javier Bardem and many more for its marquee legacy.
Gore Verbinski directed the first three titles in the well-over $4.5 billion dollar-earning pirate adventure pentalogy preceding Rob Marshall, and directing pair Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.
Reese and Wernick are the minds behind Zombieland and the hit Deadpool film series, as well as upcoming 2019 entries, Michael Bay’s 6 Underground for Netflix, and YouTube Original series, Wayne.
