No, we won’t tell you that Jack Sparrow will make a comeback in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film. Johnny Depp has moved on, and that’s great for him. He just revealed his largest project in 25 years, and his upcoming movie, Jeanne du Barry, would also include him as Louis XV. The saga’s good news is related to one of the creators who works behind the camera, not in front of it!
THIS REGULAR OF THE SAGA RETURNS FOR PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 6
Jerry Bruckheimer, the renowned director of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, spoke with our Comicbook.com colleagues during the promotion of Top Gun: Maverick, which debuted on May 25. Thus, the latter informed them of some excellent news regarding the sixth film in the series: Ted Elliot, the co-screenwriter of the original trilogy, will return!
Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio co-signed the screenplays for The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, and The Fountain of Youth between 2003 and 2011. Jeff Nathanson took over for the pair for Salazar’s Revenge, the penultimate film to be released in 2017 and the least well-liked entry in the series to yet. Ted Elliot’s return is fantastic news for the continuity of this sequel since, as Jerry Bruckheimer points out, he is an authority on the property and its characters. especially since Jack Sparrow, the only character to appear in every movie, won’t be in the sixth installment. Finding a suitable substitute who can keep us interested without pretending to make us forget the Captain of the Black Pearl will be the challenge at hand. Ted Elliott, good luck!
