Terry Rossio Hired To Pen The Script For Fifth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Film
Terry Rossio has been hired to write the script for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film!
Earlier today we reported on the fact that Johnny Depp is interested in continuing to star as Captain Jack Sparrow and that Disney was already discussing a fifth film. Depp has not been signed to star, but I am sure he will have a deal to star soon. Deadline is now reporting that the studio has hired Terry Rossio to write the fifth installment of the franchise.
This makes complete sense for Dinsey, since Rossio wrote the first four Pirates film with Ted Elliott. This will be a bit different, because this will be Rossio’s first time writing without him. Disney hopes to bring back Rob Marshall to direct the fifth film as well. So the wheels have started turning on Pirates 5, and it’s moving into the development stage.
I guess Disney is sold on the fourth film and sure it will be a hit, As I have mentioned before, I am not totally thrilled for the fourth film.
