Johnny Depp Jerry Bruckheimer Disney

Disney has confirmed that Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released on July 7, 2017 – a six-year gap between franchise entries. The tentpole, which stars Johnny Depp in the now-iconic lead role of Captain Jack Sparrow, was supposed to hit cinemas in the summer of 2015, but scripting issues have lead to major delays.

Disney will be looking forward to getting Dead Men off the ground; the last Pirates movie - On Stranger Tides - grossed $1.04 billion in 2011. So far, the franchise as a whole has accumulated something like  $3.7 billion in ticket sales alone, and merchandise for the movies sells well, too.

Johnny Depp Jerry Bruckheimer Disney

Officially, and this is from Jerry Bruckheimer’s mouth: Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has been delayed to 2016 because of a scripting issue. He and everyone involved want to get it right. Sounds plausible enough. But given the problems Disney had with a big-money Johnny Depp, Bruckheimer-produced blockbuster last time out, suggestions are that the giants are mulling things over.

“We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done,” revealed Bruckheimer in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s all a factor,” he said, answering a question on price tags. “We want a script that everyone’s signed off on and a budget that everyone’s signed off on.” Jeff Nathanson is working on the screenplay for Pirates 5 and Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are signed up to direct.

The Lone Ranger Review


Good

Everything about this film screams excess, from the ludicrous two-and-a-half hour running time to the whopping scale of the action sequences to Johnny Depp's bizarro costume. But this reunion between Depp and his original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy director Verbinski is a solidly made romp that actually has some genuine laughs and thrills. There's certainly never a dull moment.

It's set in late-1860s Texas, where John Reid (Hammer) arrives to visit his brother Dan (Dale), whose wife Rebecca (Wilson) is John's former flame. After an elaborate prison break, John is deputised and joins the posse of rangers hunting down the escapee. When they're ambushed, John is the lone survivor, nursed back to health by quirky outsider Tonto (Depp), a Native American who knows how to get to the bottom of what's going on here. So they go undercover to find the truth, which involves a secret silver mine, construction on the first transcontinental American railway, and tensions between European settlers and the native Comanche community.

The script is a complex riot of details that resolutely refuse to gel into a coherent picture until the screenwriters are good and ready to fill in the gaps. In the mean time, they throw the characters into a series of madcap action set-pieces that are wildly cartoonish in the way everyone just dusts themselves off afterwards and carries on. From train crashes to horseback chases, this is non-stop action. And Verbinski is an expert at staging these massive sequences, so they're a lot of fun to watch, especially when the film is populated with such energetic characters.

Actor Johnny Depp has come out fighting over the criticism levelled at his movie The Lone Ranger, saying his performance as Tonto was a "salute to the Native Americans" and that it's disappointing box-office performance in the United States didn't trouble him because he had no expectations.

When quizzed by the BBC's Lizo Mzimba at the UK premiere of the movie, Depp played down the extent of the 'flop', saying, "I don't have any expectations, I think critics were especially upset that it didn't really tank. I think they were hoping that it would really tank, you know?"

Is 'Alice In Wonderland 2' Such A Good Idea For Johnny Depp?


Johnny Depp Tim Burton Gore Verbinski Jerry Bruckheimer

At the turn of millennium, Johnny Depp made five movies, Blow (2001), From Hell (2001), Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), Once Upon A Time in Mexico (2003), and Secret Window (2004). The majority of these movies were pretty good and even those garnering mixed reviews featured strong performances from the chameleon, Depp.

This week, the Hollywood actor agreed up star in a sequel to 2010's fantasy blockbuster Alice in Wonderland. Yes, the film grossed $1 billion, though it wasn't very good. Tim Burton sacrificed all the magic and heart of the original for a pointless 3-D treat, with Depp's Mad Hatter character appearing superfluous - if that's at all possible.
