Did the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie get a release date? Disney confirms “Aye, it’s true!” on the Facebook page for the popular movie series setting sail once again.
7/7/2017 is the scheduled release date for the fifth installment of the Pirates franchise .. Not that Disney is going to need the luck this date will bring #777. (insert clever pirate pun on all the money they are going to make. Treasure or booty related.) The last Pirates film came out in May 2011, so they’re taking their time with his one. High expectations.
The last Pirates film that included Captain Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp, grossed over one billion dollars worldwide. The loss of actors such as Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly didn’t hurt the series as some speculated.
Disney didn’t release many details on the blog post they shared today about the new film, but the IMDb page for the film does. According to IMDb the movie will be called, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Christoph Waltz is rumored to play Captain Brand and Geoffrey Rush is rumored to reprise his role as Captain Barbossa. Like always the film will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. He will be joined by co-directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. Screenplay will be by Jeff Nathanson, who also wrote Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
