Pirates Of The Caribbean is in a bit of a mess. Only the first movie was truly good. The sequels became increasingly bloated, convoluted and overly reliant on Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow just as the joke was starting to wear a bit thin.

So the entire typical Hollywood thinking process was then played out in front of our eyes:

”Another sequel with different creatives… no… a soft reboot to pass the torch… no… bring back some old characters… no… a female-led gender swapped version… no… a Batman style reboot…”

It’s like a playbook, if that playbook was written by Derek Zoolander.

With the usual tedious inevitability of Hollywood being Hollywood, they have arrived at the expected destination.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has confirmed that the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie will be a full reboot.

While promoting Guy Ritchie’s The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, the uber-producer seemed to hint to ComicBook.com that this is because they can’t be bothered to wait around for certain actors to become available:

“You don’t know how they come together. You just don’t know. Because with Top Gun you have an actor [Tom Cruise] who is iconic and brilliant. And how many movies he does before he does Top Gun, I can’t tell you. But we’re gonna reboot Pirates, so that is easier to put together because you don’t have to wait for certain actors.”

The Last of Us co-creator and showrunner Craig Mazin was working on a script with Ted Elliot.
