Disney Taps ‘Kon-Tiki’ Directors for Pirates 5

Pirates 5 Directors?

Disney has made a choice for who will direct Pirates of the Caribbean 5. They have chosen Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, of recent Kon-Tiki fame, and are now in final negotiations with the duo about the next swashbuckling movie in this very lucrative franchise.

Johnny Depp will be returning as Captain Jack Sparrow in this Pirates movie. Jerry Bruckheimer will produce. Jeff Nathanson is known to have written the most recent draft of the script. However, it might undergo more treatment once the directors are officially on board.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is scheduled to sail to theaters on July 10, 2015.  Filming should begin in January.
