While people are currently focused on what will happen with Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after the firing of James Gunn, there is another project at Walt Disney Studios that might have some issues moving forward and that is Pirates of the Caribbean 6.

We now hear progress has been made and it might actually end up happening with director Joachim Rønning expected to return (currently shooting Disney’s Maleficent 2). A script is seemingly being worked on by writers Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, and Jeff Nathanson with production designer Nigel Phelps said to be returning as well.

Considering Joachim is busy with Maleficent 2 there is a good chance filming won’t be taking place until after that releases in late May 2020 and we assume could land a release in 2021-2022. Now comes the big question, post-James Gunn will Disney tolerate the return of Johnny Depp in a sixth film?

I can see one final PotC happening with or without Johnny Depp. What a shame it would be that they finally got Bloom and Knightley back only to have to cut out Depp though. :lol:

Although, talking about Depp, I wonder how that might affect the Fantastic Beasts series, which (depending on how well the second one does, I imagine) will have either 2 to 4 more installments. I never liked him as a choice for Grindelwald anyway (he looks nothing like how the character is described when-young in DH, beautiful with long, blonde hair). I can't lie--it would be nice if he was re-cast with someone who actually looks like the character.

The guy who played him in the Deathly Hallows movie seemed pretty apt.

...Are the public still interested in the Pirates franchise? I thought the last film bombed.

Pirates 5 made $794 million off a $230 million budget, so the last one still did really well, although with a significant drop from On Stranger Tides. These movies are pretty expensive, though, so I can understand there being internal debates within Disney over whether there is still gold to be made from this series. As well as Dead Men Tell No Tales did, it's still the first film in the franchise to gross less than $200 million domestically.

I think the reason Pirates 5 were not as successful is obvious. They took everything that people disliked about Pirates 4 and made it the center and focus of all the trailers and other promotion. I know many people who are fans of the original three movies and though the fourth one was weaker (which I think is popular opinion), and most of them didn't see the fifth one in cinemas. When I asked why, it was exactly this: trailers made it look worse than the fourth one.

All this talk of a sixth instalment (really?!), and I can't help but be reminded of this article from the Daily Mash (British satirical news site, a bit like The Onion): https://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/art ... 0524128195
