Disney Considering New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ from ‘Deadpool’ Writers Reese and Wernick

Pirates of the Caribbean
Disney may be considering another voyage to the high seas. Deadline are reporting that the studio has met with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writing duo behind Deadpool, and they are now in early talks to write the sixth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

 

At this point it’s too early to say whether or not the film will be a sequel or a total reboot, as it’s unknown whether any of the original cast, including Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, will be back for another adventure. Both On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales told stand alone stories following the conclusion of the original trilogy, and, should Depp return, it’s likely that the sixth instalment will do the same.

 

Dead Men Tell No Tales did set up a potential sequel in it’s post credits scene, teasing at the return of Davy Jones now that Will’s curse is broken. But such a story is likely contingent on whether or not Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley are both willing to return to the franchise in larger roles.

 

If the movie goes ahead, series producer Jerry Brockheimer will continue to lead the franchise, which has grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide.

 

Disney’s next theme park adaptation, Jungle Cruise, is set to sail into theaters July 24th 2020.
