Since the release of Salazar’s Revenge in 2017, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise seemed to be at a standstill. In question: increasingly disappointing results at the box office but also setbacks and an accelerated descent into hell in recent years for its star, Johnny Depp. But in 2020, Jerry Bruckheimer, the iconic producer of the saga, surprised fans with the announcement of a sixth film, described as a reboot, with the disappearance of the famous Jack Sparrow in favor of one or rather a new buccaneer embodied by Margot Robbie (The Suicide Squad, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood). But in truth, Disney and the producer are still struggling to decide definitively on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Jerry Bruckheimer confided in the progress of the new film in the franchise. We learn that the screenwriters selected are actually working on two scripts at the same time. The first is obviously based on the presence of Margot Robbie, a total reboot which evolves in the hands of screenwriter Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey, Bumblebee). The second, supervised by Craig Mazin (the Chernobyl mini-series) and Ted Elliott, longtime author of the saga, is also a reboot but softer, in which Jerry Bruckheimer does not exclude the possibility of the return of Johnny Depp alias Jack Sparrow. In the middle of a trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, the American actor had nevertheless revealed during his testimony that he would never play the captain of the Black Pearl again. Johnny Depp assured that the domestic violence suffered in his relationship with Amber Heard and the multiple refusals of Disney who would have let him down on a handful of projects would have finally convinced him to say goodbye to the character. In summary, if the future of Pirates of the Caribbean will pass a priori by Margot Robbie, Jerry Bruckheimer and some of the fans still hope that Jack Sparrow will come back from the dead, even if his interpreter has lost the taste and the right to wear the horizon on his famous three-master.
