News - New Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie Finds Writers, And One Is Unexpected

New Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie Finds Writers, And One Is Unexpected

Disney is reviving the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, and now the media giant has selected two writers for the job.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has hired a pair of writers for the job, one of whom might come as a surprise. The first is Ted Elliott, which comes as no surprise given he wrote the 2003 original Pirates movie and some of its sequels. The more surprising hire is Craig Mazin, who recently won acclaim for creating the HBO show Chernobyl. Mazin also wrote the comedies Scary Movie 3 and 4, as well as The Hangover: Part II.

It appears the new Pirates movie is going through another draft revision, as Disney originally hired Deadpool and Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen the script for the new Pirates movie. They left the Pirates movie earlier in 2019.

It sounds like it's still very early days for the new Pirates film, as Elliot and Mazin are said to be first working on finding a direction for the movie, and then the story.

Johnny Depp famously played Captain Jack Sparrow in all the Pirates movies, but whether or not he would return for the new one is unknown.

The Pirates movies are big-time blockbusters. The latest one, 2017's Dead Men Tell No Tales, made $795 million at the box office, and stands as the second worst-performing of them all, which says something about how much of a juggernaut the franchise is. Across the five releases dating back to 2003, the Pirates franchise has made around $4.4 billion at the box office.
