About a year ago Disney pulled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from the 2015 release calendar so that Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg would have more time to work on Jeff Nathanson’s script, which they apparently wanted to tweak.  A wise move considering how On Stranger Tides turned out (even if its international box office was higher than its predecessors).

But now we have an official new release date for the film.  Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (apparently that’s still the official title) will now arrive on July 7th, 2017.  Hit the jump for more on the new Pirates of the Caribbean 5 release date.

Will there be any demonic monsters in Pirates 5?

BRUCKHEIMER:  No, no. I think we’re back to more of a straight pirates movie this time.

So, you won’t have big Kraken creatures anymore?

BRUCKHEIMER:  Not in the script I read recently.

That seems to counter the plot rumors we were hearing over a year ago, so maybe the work they’ve done on the script has indeed been significant.  At this point we don’t know much concrete about the film except that Johnny Depp will of course be returning as captain Jack Sparrow.

What do you think about that development?  I actually quite like the first film and thought it had a fairly exemplary script as far as blockbusters are concerned.  While I loved Gore Verbinski‘s direction on Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End, I never revisit them.  And the less said about On Stranger Tides the better.
