Ahoy maties !
With Jerrry Bruckheimer's comments, some of us were expecting Pirates 5, or DMTNT, to be released around 2016. Sadly (or not, depending on how you see it), Disney just announced July 7, 2017, to be its new official release date.
We can assume Bob Iger finally saw something he thought was worthy to get greenlit, which is good news.
Since the first draft was written in, I think, 2011, that gives them plenty of time to finalize it and make it the best story they can tell.
Of course, it could still be delayed, but if it happens, I doubt it'll be more than a couple of months. With Johnny Depp getting older, if they're not able to do it for 2017, I'm going to start to doubt the movie will ever happen...
So, what are your thoughts on t…Read more >
Yes, Pirates fans, you didn't misread...
Disney decided to change Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales release date from July 10, 2015 to (potentially) somewhere around summer 2016. Yeah, for those who were highly looking forward to it, it's disappointing, but at the same time, this can only make the movie better. Of course, it's also giving more chances for DMTNT to be a box office success because it won't have the competition it would have had in 2015 (which is maybe the biggest blockbuster year ever).
Here's what Disney's production president Sean Bailey had to say about it :
“Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow’s next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place,” said Dis…Read more >
Mr. Bruckheimer had been interviewed by Indiewire and he gave his opinion about the new directors as well as some little updates on the movie.
Here's an insert :
We asked Bruckheimer what made him so sure that the relatively unknown filmmakers could tackle such a beloved (not to mention lucrative) franchise.
"We saw their movie early on, maybe six months ago, and I saw some of their other work, which I thought was terrific. That convinced me," Bruckheimer explained. "They were interested in doing it and they flew over and we showed them a script that we were working on and they had really amazing ideas." The producer also offered a progress report on the project: "Last Friday they came to Hollywood and settled in and started working on it. We'r…Read more >
Deadline came with a list of potential directors for Pirates 5 !
Personally, I don't know any of them. But I did some digging and here's what I found :
(Before beginning, I just want to specify that it hasn't been confirmed by Disney or anything)...
- Fredrik Bond : He seems to have directed only one "known" movie (he doesn't even have a wikipedia page). It's called The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, it was released this year and it's really far of a Pirates type movie.
- Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg : Again, they're not that famous, but they directed a Jaws type movie called Kon-Tiki, taking place on a ship. Also, they directed a French/Mexican/American western, Bandidas, starring Penélope Cruz !
- Rupert Sanders : The only film he did was Snow…Read more >
Ahoy mateys !
I don't have a lot of time, so let's go to the essential : Jerry Bruckheimer did an interview for The Lone Ranger and talked a bit about P5 : http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/exclusive-lone-ranger-super-bowl-sneak-peek-161249557.html
I know it's not a lot, but we now know they have a good idea of the story (at least) and that Johnny liked it (though it would have surprised me he would have said something like "We've pitched the story to Johnny who really hated it" lol).Read more >
