According to Jerry Bruckheimer, the next Pirates of the Caribbean film will reintroduce one of the original writers.
According to Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer, one of the series’ original writers will return for the next film. When Chris Killian of Comicbook.com spoke with him for Top Gun: Maverick, they had to talk about getting back on the seven seas. “I’m very excited; it’s going to be fantastic,” Bruckheimer said. “We’re just finishing up the screenplay.” Ted Elliot, one of the original writers, is assisting with the writing.He has a strong understanding of the characters.” So, with a couple of familiar faces on board, Disney continues with another instalment in the beloved franchise. The last instalment was years ago. However, as Maverick demonstrates, audiences will hunker down for a familiar world if the story is told correctly. Many fans are wondering what the film will look like without Johnny Depp. However, after so much time has passed, a revitalization may be in order.Kevin McNally, the series’ star, thought the franchise’s embattled former lead should return. Last year, Express spoke with the actor about the possibility.“Johnny has never shown me any signs of a dark side. I see a wonderful humanitarian and a lovely human being. I don’t see anything preventing him from reprising his role as Jack Sparrow.” McNally explained. “I believe there was a widespread belief that the Pirates franchise would cease to exist without Jack. And there’s probably some truth to that. But now there are questions about that, such as why not have other Pirate films, and why not have Jack return or play a different role.”Dany Garcia, the producer of Jungle Cruise, acknowledged the impact of these films. He told Variety that they were looking for that kind of success during that run. “Well, I have to tell you, we had, we knew there were big swings ahead of us.” “I mean, look at Pirates of the Caribbean, know what they did, know what the previous Haunted Mansion, those storylines were,” Garcia suggested.“So we felt we could take the premise, the heart, the humour, and add – you know, Walt [Disney] always wanted the tour to be exciting and have a little bit of tension and action in it, because it is the jungle.” So we’re going to lean into that, just turn up the volume and say, ‘Okay, let’s take it out of our little ride,’ and all of a sudden you’re in the Amazon, where there might be waterfalls and a little more danger. It wasn’t difficult; we just blew it up a lot.”
