Ahoy, Disney fans! Exciting waves are crashing onto the shores of the beloved “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise! In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer shed light on the future of our favorite high-seas adventure series. A confirmed reboot is set to be penned by Jeff Nathanson, who previously scripted the 2017 hit “Dead Men Tell No Tales.” And while this news rules out familiar characters like Johnny Depp’s iconic Captain Jack Sparrow, Bruckheimer couldn’t help but express his desire to see Depp return. “If it was up to me, he would be in it,” Bruckheimer shared. “He’s an amazing artist and created Captain Jack Sparrow with a unique flair that only he could bring.”

Adding more intrigue to this narrative is Disney’s ambition to launch another “Pirates” movie, potentially led by Margot Robbie. Variety previously reported that Disney was exploring two potential plots: a reboot and a sixth installment of the original series written by Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott. While Robbie mentioned to Vanity Fair that Disney was hesitant about a “more female-led” version, Bruckheimer remains hopeful. “We hope to get ’em both made, and I think Disney agrees they really want to make the Margot one, too,” he noted.

Given the franchise’s success, with each film grossing over $650 million worldwide, and two entries breaking the billion-dollar mark, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Bruckheimer’s optimism suggests Disney is likely to capitalize on this box office goldmine by catering to varied tastes, possibly bringing us a new pirate adventure while exploring more innovative storylines.

Jeff Nathanson’s reboot is stirring curiosity, especially with Bruckheimer’s praise for the third act of the script. “He’s cracked it. He’s got an amazing third act,” Bruckheimer marveled. However, polishing the first two acts remains a priority to deliver a seamless swashbuckling saga.

So, what does the future hold for Captain Jack? While his return is uncertain, Bruckheimer’s fond admiration for Depp hints at the endless possibilities within the “Pirates” universe. As for the potential Margot Robbie-led film, its unique vision might just sail into our hearts, providing a fresh breeze to the legendary series.
