'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' Delayed to 2016

September 10, 2013

Pirates of the Caribbean

Towards the end of last month, we learned from directing duo Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg that Pirates of the Caribbean 5 would be going by the lengthy title Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. At the time, the film was still slated for release on July 10th, 2015, but now Disney has decided to push back the film to the summer of 2016 instead. There aren't any problems behind the scenes, but as of now, the studio only has an advanced outline from writer Jeff Nathanson, and while they have time to get the script done before the film would have to start shooting in February, they decided not to rush.

Disney production president Sean Bailey told Deadline, “Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow’s next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place. We’re not there yet and we want to make sure this project is everything these wonderful characters and of course the fans deserve.” This move is promising, because it means Disney wants to make sure they get this sequel right after On Stranger Tides was decidedly lacking in any fresh adventure and fun, even though it was one of the most successful films at the box office. This explains why Disney moved Ant-Man to its new July 31st, 2015 release after initially being slated for November of 2015. Anyone disappointed?

Good news in my opinion. I'd like to see this franchise thrive again.

Disappointed? Hopefully they never get made.

Carpola on Sep 10, 2013


It will get made whether you want it get made or not, just a year later then originally planned.

Sean on Sep 11, 2013


Of course it will.

Carpola on Sep 11, 2013


It wasn't a question. I was just telling you its happening regardless of its theatrical release delay.

Sean on Sep 11, 2013


I agreed with your statement.

Carpola on Sep 11, 2013


Oh, I see. Sorry.

Sean on Sep 11, 2013


It's because the summer of 2015 is fucking LOADED with movies, included the next Superman, Avengers, Fantastic 4, Thor, Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, Ant-Man, Kung-Fu Panda, Hunger Games, Mission Impossible 5, Terminator, Bond, Finding Nemo 2, Independence Day 2, etc. No point in trying to throw yourself in that mix when 2016 can be all yours.

Yeah...probably for the best.

Disney already has Avengers, Ant-Man and Star Wars in that year. The Ant Man move makes more sense now.

Johnny Depp has soooooooooo jumped the shark just like this franchise. Stick a fork in it already.

The first pirates was great...the sequels were a let down...don't really care for another entry.
