- PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5
A script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was completed before Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides even hit theaters. That film was a box office success, but critics hammered it and the general consensus was that fasn of the series wasn’t too happy with the final film either.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer called for rewrites on the fifth film, saying the script wasn’t good enough. It would also seem that people don’t want Rob Marshall to direct the next film it does happen.
Now Marshall is the one offering an update on the fifth film, suggesting he’ll be the one who eventually directs it.
Hollywood report got his quote and here it is:
“Terry [Rossio] is writing it and he’s working incredibly hard and he did a draft and rethought it all and started working on it again. You want to make sure you are asking the audience to come back to see an exciting adventure and it has to reach that caliber, and if not there’s no reason to do it. I know Johnny feels the same way: He needs to see a script, but he would be happy — if it’s the right script — to put that hat and sword back on.”
That’s a plus, On Stranger Tides wasn’t a total train smash but it could have been much better, atleast they making sure the fifth installment is worth our time.
