Fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Movie Being Written as Stand-Alone


Johnny Depp


Jerry Bruckheimer promises to bring 'something fresh and different' with the upcoming installment after learning people love 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

Walt Disney Pictures has already planned the next voyage for Jack Sparrow although "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is yet to set sail into theaters. To USA Today, producer Jerry Bruckheimer reveals a script for the fifth installment of the comedy adventure film franchise is in the works.

The upcoming film, just like the fourth one, will be a stand-alone story. Bruckheimer recalls at test screenings of "On Stranger Tides", "the audience told us what they loved about it is that it was fresh, it was new, it was a whole new story. So that will carry over into the next one, too, to give it something fresh and different."

The filmmaker also stresses that lead actor Johnny Depp plays an important role in the future of the film series, saying "As long as the audience embraces this one, we'll certainly try to make another one. It's really up to Johnny." He adds, "He loves the character."

Speaking about the fourth film, Bruckheimer shares what the challenge they faced while shooting it in 3-D. "But the technology scared us a little, only because, you saw 'Avatar', that was all done on sound stages. Nobody had ever taken these cameras out into the jungles and did a big adventure picture," he explains.

But director Rob Marshall has overcome the problem as the producer says, "Rob did an enormous amount of research with the cinematographer, and we finally went to Disney and said, 'Look, we really think we can do this.' And they thought about it for a while, because it increases the costs, but in the end, they agreed with us and said, 'Let's go for it.' "

"On Stranger Tides" follows Captain Jack Sparrow in an adventure which is untied with the first three films. Johnny Depp reprises his role as the eccentric pirate, joined by Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane as new cast members. The movie will open in U.S. theaters on May 20.
