'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' still waiting for official green light from Disney
"Pirates of the Caribbean 5," initially announced last year, is in for some stormy seas.
Despite the fact that star Johnny Depp is inked to reprise his billion dollar role as Captain Jack Sparrow, the fifth installment is still waiting for an official green light from Disney CEO Bob Iger, according to a tweet sent by Variety reporter Marc Graser.
Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg ("Kon-Tiki") were previously announced as directors of the film, which is reported to carry the subtitle "Dead Man Tell No Tales."
"POTC 5" was originally scheduled for the crowded 2015 summer before being relocated to the summer of 2016. That season is shaping up to be just as busy, with scheduled releases including "Batman vs. Superman," "Captain America 3," "X-Men: Apocalypse," "Alice in Wonderland 2," "Amazing Spider-Man 3," "How to Train Your Dragon 3," and Pixar's "Finding Dory" (and those are just the sequels).
The first four "Pirates" films grossed a combined total of $3.7 billion.
