Official, Pirates of the Caribbean starts from scratch

The information was confirmed by Jerry Bruckheimer himself, producer of the franchise, who clarified that the new Pirates of the Caribbean film would be a complete reboot of the franchise.

Started in 2003 and revamped in 2017 with Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge, the cinema franchise now has five films. And until now, we thought the producer was trying to bring Johnny Depp back. It was while promoting Guy Ritchie's new film, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, that the famous producer denied this, not without a certain malice!

"You can't know in advance how things will will be put in place. You can not. For example, with Top Gun you have a brilliant, iconic actor (Tom Cruise). How many films did he make before making a new Top Gun? I can not tell you. For Pirates, it's not the same thing, it's easier to set up a reboot (restart everything) because you don't have to wait for certain actors. That's said. Johnny Depp will appreciate it.
