PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 Filming Delayed; Release Date Pushed Back

Originally slated to open on July 10, 2015, Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is now drifting towards a 2016 release date.  The studio’s reason for the delay: to take the time with this particular installment in order to make sure it’s as good as it can be.  Disney isn’t exactly hurting for summer 2015 releases, as we reported in yesterday’s news that Ant-Man would be making a leap from November to July.  They’ve also got Pixar’s Inside Out and The Avengers: Age of Ultron opening up, so I think they’ll be okay.  No confirmation on just when Star Wars: Episode VII is landing, but news for now has us waiting another year for Pirates.

Johnny Depp will return to star in the film, reportedly titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 3) wrote the screenplay, and Kon-Tiki‘s Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg will direct. (Via THR)

    Oh darn.

    Holy crap, the Lone Ranger strikes again.

    • Jan

      I think the idea of this move is to make sure the Lone Ranger DOES NOT strike again, in a sense.

      • Murdoch

        First Disney took away Jerry Bruckheimer’s final cut privileges on Pirates 5, now they want a re-write on the script.
        Who says no one important in Hollywood ever pays for their flops?

      • Adrian

        I’m sure that’s why it’s being moved. They’re probably not too happy with the budget as is and want to scale that back as well thanks to the catastrophe that was The Lone Ranger. It’ll take more discussion on their part, hence the move.

      Yes, But this time its happening to a Disney movie before the filming even begins on it, unlike what happened to The Lone Ranger because of the filming for that movie already happening when its release date was moved back. So it’s not as bad this time to the point where it would hurt the overall quality of the movie, because of it already started filming which in Pirates 5′s case is not a problem because Pirates 5 doesn’t start filming until September 2014 or October 2014 or November 2014.

    But, but… this news seems to give a good, logical reason for Ant-Man to have been moved up!

    Howsoever will you be able to stretch to connect BOTH things to the idiotic rumor that SW has been delayed to Christmas 2015!?

    • RiddleThemThis

      Howsoever should not be a word.

      • MarvelWatch

        Chrome’s spell check didn’t call me on it, and it’s in the Websters and Oxford Dictionaries.

        Of course, I withdraw the snarkiness of my comeback if you were actually expressing an opinion that it is not worthy of being a word. But if that does happen to be the case, I would daresay that you have no sense of wonder, my good sir.

    Bullshit. They are doing this to open up a Summer spot for Episode VII.

    • Northern Star

      It wouldn’t surprise me if Disney announce the July 10, 2015 release slot for Episode VII now… not saying they will but don’t be shocked if they do, they’re very obviously determined come hell, high water, or whether it’s even ready to start shooting this January and released sometime the following year!

      What Jar Jar Abrams will make of it if they do remains to be seen… he’s apparently already on a mercilessly tight schedule to deliver this film, and a summer 2015 release should make his head positively explode if rumors are to be believed!

      What about ant man ?
      Isn’t it their July movie ?

    Good. I’m just a bit worried that 2015 can’t support all those tentpoles. I sincerely hope that Hollywood won’t collapse, crash, and burn like Spielberg says. But I remain hopeful, and I like the way this new Pirates film is going. Small budget, focused on Jack, new blood….should be better than the dreck they’ve been putting out.

    I know that Geoffrey Rush is in his early 60′s but I hope he will still be around(alive), when the filming starts to happen in Fall 2014 so that he can return to play Barbossa in Pirates 5.

    And funnily enough this dying joke.

  • pickaname

    And yet what’s even more frustrating is that the last movie in this “dying” franchise made over a billion dollars. I hate life.
