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 White and the Huntsman. I saw it and quiet enjoyed it. If that list come to be true, I think he has more chances to be chosen than the others because he already directed a "blockbuster" movie (though it doesn't mean anything, they chose Rob Marshall for OST).
What do you think mateys ?
