Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 delays filming

Potentially pushed back to 2016

Disney has delayed filming on Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, with rumours emerging that the film may be pushed back into a 2016 release date.

Initially slated to open in the US on 10 July 2015, the film will now likely be shelved for a year, with cameras not set to roll until the studio is entirely happy with the project.

Disney’s reason for the delay? Apparently they want to ensure that the film is as good as it can possibly be, with reservations that Jeff Nathanson’s script isn't quite ready. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told The Hollywood Reporter, "We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done."

Plot details are non-existent at this stage, although it has been rumoured that the film will appear under the title Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Kon-Tiki duo Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg will co-direct, while Johnny Depp will return once more for a fifth outing as Captain Jack Sparrow.

      Or has it been delayed because nobody wants to see it?

      Get rid of the whole f*****g thing. A bigger curse on the film industry there is not. All of the films are dreadful, but each one raises the bar of awfulness.

      Back in 2006 I remember how excited everyone was about Pirates 2. A lot of people have now realised that this franchise is just dreadful. I do 't think Depp is even that keen to return. They should have just leftist after the first one but of course a disney had to milk this cash cow! Something they so regularly.

      The Pirates franchise still generates hefty Box Office, Disney will milk it dry.

      Its a load of bollocks so they should ditch it - having said that its the only franchise in existence where they don't insist that Johnny have his face painted white so maybe he should keep doing them.
