Disney In Talks With ‘Deadpool’ Writers To Reboot ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Franchise

Just a few months ago it was reported that Disney was looking to move forward with a sixth Pirates Of The Caribbean film. Now it looks like those plans could change. As Deadline is reporting the studio has met with Deadpool writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and are now in early talks to write the script, which would possibly reboot the billion dollar franchise.

It is unclear if the previously reported Joachim Rønning will return to direct. It is also unclear if Disney plans to bring back Johnny Depp back as the popular Jack Sparrow. Jerry Bruckheimer will once again board the ship as producer.

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is one of the most financially successful of all time. The five films have grossed over $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office. The last pirates film Dead Men Tell No Tales ended up making $794.1M worldwide for the studio, dominating the Memorial Day weekend in 2017.
