Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will be more of a “straight pirate movie, says producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
For those who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, you might have noticed that it delved way more into the supernatural compared to the previous film entries that focused more on swashbuckling, and other pirate-y stuff. Well, if you’re hoping for more of the latter in Pirates of the Caribbean 5, you’re in luck, as that’s exactly what you’ll be getting. Speaking to Collider, mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer was asked if there will be “demonic monsters” in the film franchise’s fifth entry, to which he replied, “No, no. I think we’re back to more of a straight pirates movie this time.” Following up with that question, he was then asked whether the film “won’t have big Kraken creatures anymore?” Bruckheimer reiterates and says, “Not in the script I read recently.”
In other parts of the interview, Bruckheimer mentions that he’s working on an “outline” for Bad Boys III, and that he’s hopeful a screenplay will be ready in three months. Regarding National Treasure 3, the producer confirms they are working on another one, and that he recently had a meeting with the writers and the director, so he’s hoping it “will come together.”
Are you looking forward to Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales? Regardless of how it comes together, let’s hope it doesn’t become a big of a money sink as Bruckheimer’s Lone Ranger, which is said to cost Disney — and Bruckheimer — $150 million in losses.
