Johnny Depp is expected to return as the lovable Captain Jack Sparrow
While some of you might think that “Pirates of the Caribbean” should have stopped putting out movies after the third installment was complete, Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer beg to differ. After the success of “Pirates of the Caribbean 4” at the box office, the studio is ready to make the fifth part of the franchise.
The Hollywood Reporter has given as certain the cinematic release of “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” and has dated it on July 7, 2017. That gives you plenty of time to watch the first four parts of the pirate story in case you haven't seen them all multiple times already and even bought the DVDs.
Initially, part 5 of the story was supposed to be released in the summer of 2015, but it was delayed due to unfinished work on the script. As expected, Johnny Depp is going to return in the role of the weird and funny pirate Captain Jack Sparrow.
Acting as directors for the film are Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, with Jerry Bruckheimer assuming the role of producer, all under the watchful eye of Disney, which hopes to reprise its success from part 4, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which was released in 2011 and managed to cross the one billion dollars mark at the box office.
