“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” might be delayed even further depending on the decision to move forward with the production. The release date for the fifth installment has been pushed back from 2015 to 2016, according to reports released in October 2013.
Jerry Bruckheimer said in an interview that script issues are the reason behind the delay:
“We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done,”
“Men in Black 3” scribe Jeff Nathanson who written the initial script “was too expensive but it was also really complicated and hard to follow,”
Disney’s CEO Bob Iger revealed during a stakeholder meeting in Portland, Ore, that the projects has not been greenlighted.
Is Disney still feeling the brunt of the “The Lone Ranger” flop which cost them millions to produce? When asked if the delay had something to do with it Bruckheimer said:
“It’s all a factor. We want a script that everyone’s signed off on and a budget that everyone’s signed off on,”
“everybody’s more cautious”
Johnny Depp is expected to reprise his role as the infamous Jack Sparrow.
