Pirates of the Caribbean 6

According to a new report from Omega Underground, Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is moving forward at the studio, with Joachim Rønning, co-director of the latest installment, at the helm. On script duties, meanwhile, are franchise veterans Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio and Jeff Nathanson, with the pic said to be eyeing a 2021 release at the earliest. Details beyond that remain scarce, but it should be interesting to see how Disney deals with Mr. Depp.

Regardless, it’s clear that the studio wants to continue on with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and though most people are probably sick of it at this stage, as long as it keeps pulling in big bucks at the box office, Disney’s sure to keep pumping out more adventures for Captain Jack and the gang.
