Disney Planning Fifth and Sixth ‘Pirates’ Back To Back
Disney doesn’t plan to retire Jack Sparrow anytime soon.
With a fourth releasing next summer, Disney is firmly in the ‘Pirates’ game after a few disappointments this year. And while the next one will make a billion dollars, Disney has plans for more.
HitFix reports that the studio has plans for not just one but two more ‘Pirates of the Carribean’ movies and plans to shoot them back to back. That’s all we know for now, but it definitely puts to rest any claims that this will be the franchise’s final movie. The idea of shooting it back to back will definitely cut back on costs, something which Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer are keen to do with their bloated movies all of a sudden.
Even though there is no confirmation, it’s safe to assume that Johnny Depp will be back for the final two films. Depp seems to be the only stable cast member of the franchise to date and pretty much the only draw about the movies so if Depp isn’t on board, consider these plan most likely scrapped. Of course, there’s always the Hollywood reboot to start the franchise with a rising actor once again.
The teaser trailer for ‘Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides’ debuts on December 13th and will be attached to prints of ‘Tron: Legacy’.
