Production on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5 isn’t expected to kick off until later this year or early next year, but the choice for director should be in within the next few weeks.  Here’s the reported short list:

  • Fredrik Bond (The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman)
  • Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki)
  • Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman)

Deadline reports that the Kon-Tiki co-directors are the names that are coming up most often in discussions.  Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) has been tapped to pen the fifth installment of the property.  Check out what producer Jerry Bruckheimer had to say about the picture in a recent interview with Steve.

    All the good directors are probably taken up with Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Matterhorn, Autopia, Jungle Cruise, and of course the Haunted Mansion reboot… Did anybody tell them that the Pirate films turned awful after the first one? Boy do I hate how the box office determines what projects get made.

    Rupert Sanders doesnt have such sence of humor. No match for Gore Verbinski. Go get Edgar Wright.

    • DG

      Or better yet let Edgar Wright put his talents to better use and just get whoever to direct so I can get my action/adventure fix and nothing else.

    • Sean

      Edgar Wright is not one of the directors that they are trying to choose from, to have direct Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

    I really don’t think they could’ve come up with a worse shortlist. Rupert Sanders? Seriously? Because Snow White and the Huntsman was so well received? Here’s a few better suggestions:

    Tom Tykwer

    Brian Helgeland

    Rupert Wyatt

    Jon Favraeu (and he’s already in with Disney)

    • Sean

      None of those directors you mentioned of are being considered to have direct Pirates 5.

  • Yurine

    Sanders really dropped the ball with the story of snow white. So no on him.

      Gore Verbinski does not want to be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise anymore. That is why he left after directing Pirates 3.

  • Sean

    Considering that Fredrik Bond who helmed The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman, has been a favorite of Bruckheimer and has been rumored for some time. I can almost guarantee that Fredrik Bond will be the director that will be directing Pirates 5.
