A sixth Pirates film, Disney hopes, will inject new life into a series that has already grossed $4.56 billion combined. Attempts at rebooting it in 2018 stalled when Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wenick, hired to pen the script, left the project earlier this year.

Ted Elliot and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin are up for writing duties now. Elliot co-wrote the screenplays for the first four Pirates of the Caribbean films. Jerry Bruckheimer will produce once again.

Why does it have to be a reboot though? There's no established universe (novels, games, or tv shows) to draw from. It can be another story set in the same universe.

Because the original franchise was run into the ground.

Yeah but how does it affect this movie? If people were not interested, they won't care if it is reboot or spin-off. :think:

The films still made bank though. On Stranger Tides made a billion dollars and the last one almost made $800 million worldwide. I know the budgets are ridiculously huge but still.

Was that issue with production or what? I remember reading about reshoots for last one.

Well, Depp/Heard happened during that time so... I think there were reshoots but I don't know how substantial those were.
