Attention, little pirates. At the moment, rumors are making the rounds that Pirates 6 is officially in the works.
As the title says, it seems that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 may be officially moving forward — at the least that’s the latest rumor circling Disney’s popular swashbuckling adventure series, even as other rumors swirl about whether or not franchise star Johnny Depp will be returning.
Geeks World Wide dropped a report stating that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is gearing up for pre-production, with Joachim Rønning expected to reprise his directing duties after the previous installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It’s also reported that the script is being worked out by Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio and Jeff Nathanson, and that Nigel Phelps will be returning for production design.
At the moment, Joachim Rønning is working on Disney’s Maleficent 2, so actual production on Pirates of the Caribbean 6 reportedly isn’t set to begin until 2020, with 2021 or 2022 being the proposed release date window.
Until now there is no confirmation on Disney‘s side, so I decided to mark these news as rumors. I gotta admit though, that as a little Sparrow myself, my pirate heart skipped a beat. Would love to see it happen – of course with Johnny in it. Stay tuned for more information.
