Jerry Bruckheimer discusses “Pirates of the Caribbean 5”

June 23, 2013

Speaking with The Playlist while promoting The Lone Ranger, Jerry Bruckheimer discussed the next Pirates Of The Caribbean film. Recently, it was announced that newcomers Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) signed on to direct the fifth installment in the multi-billion dollar Disney franchise, and Bruckheimer has nothing but good things to say about their take on the next sequel.

“We saw their movie early on, maybe six months ago, and I saw some of their other work, which I thought was terrific. That convinced me. They were interested in doing it and they flew over and we showed them a script that we were working on and they had really amazing ideas. Last Friday they came to Hollywood and settled in and started working on it. We’re hiring production designers now and it’s moving forward.”

The producer also confirmed that the fifth go-around for Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow will “absolutely” showcase the expected mix of “high seas adventure and supernatural horror” that was featured in the first four movies, and goes on to comment on the film’s shooting locations and settings.

“We’re certainly going to be filming in Louisiana because of the tax breaks and I think there might be a sequence there. But it will also be set in the Caribbean, obviously.”

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 is scheduled to hit theaters July 10th, 2015.
