The fifth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise has been pushed back by another year. Production of the film won’t begin until later this year, which means it won’t be ready for its expected release date of July 10, 2015.
Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that production was pushed back because of issues with the script and he is now hoping the movie will make it to theaters by summer 2016.
“We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done…We want a script that everyone’s signed off on and a budget that everyone’s signed off on,” Bruckheimer told The Hollywood Reporter.
The screenplay is being worked on by Jeff Nathanson, and Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg will be directing “Pirates of the Caribbean 5.”
Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow will return to reprise his role. However, it has yet to be announced it any other “Pirates” actors will be returning.
