PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 Not Yet Given The Greenlight

Man, Disney's on a roll today! The release date for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film was already delayed, but now Disney's CEO Bob Iger has admitted that the film hasn't actually been given the greenlight yet. Hit the Jump for more.

The fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film has been in the works for quite some time, and after pushing the release date back almost a whole year , Variety's @marcgraser reports that the film hasn't actually been greenlit -- so if there's still any fans of the franchise out there, Disney CEO Bob Iger says to hold your horses. But if directors, cast, and writers line up, we could see further announcements shortly, so stay tuned!

I thought it was witched with a film in 2015 to 2016. Huh.....
Super12 - 3/18/2014, 7:54 PM
Ugh...good. I couldn't stand that 4th one. Please let this franchise die with what dignity it still has left

Huh. Weird. These things seem to be instantly green lighted without question. I would be say maybe they're actually trying to make sure they have a good film this time or might even finally let this series rest in peace.. but I don't like to kid myself.
NoPhucksGiven - 3/18/2014, 8:00 PM
love these movies. but the last one was average as [frick].
bazinga85 - 3/18/2014, 8:03 PM
Does anyone care about this franchise anymore?
PeterDarker121 - 3/18/2014, 8:03 PM
It hasn't been given the green light yet?

Good. Can it stay in that state of development forever? PLEASE?
MrCBM56 - 3/18/2014, 8:04 PM
First was great. Second was alright. Third was a convoluted mess, but still entertaining. Fourth was mediocre. Fifth is not needed.
MrCBM56 - 3/18/2014, 8:05 PM
I was thinking to myself, what if POTC was to remade? RDJ would be perfect for Sparrow.
UltimateHunt - 3/18/2014, 8:10 PM
it was Perfect for 2015.
still the best one was in 2001,
i hope tim burton joins.
it needs to be done and it needs the greenlight now!
UltimateHunt - 3/18/2014, 8:10 PM
i mean 2003 i believe lol
UltimateHunt - 3/18/2014, 8:17 PM
or maybe Disney they know he cant do it because Johhny Depp will be busy with

;) fingers cross
anthonyEstark - 3/18/2014, 8:20 PM
@Ror thanks, I didn't catch that.
MoreGambit - 3/18/2014, 8:25 PM
Please please please please please no more Pirates of the Caribbean. Talk about beating a dead horse. Ever since he got cast as Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp has been overacting in every single role. I would have once rejoiced to hear that Depp had been cast as Dr. Strange, but now I just groan at the prospect of having to watch him in anything.
ManDeth - 3/18/2014, 8:27 PM
The 1st one was a very fun and entertaining film. The 2nd was pretty good the third was unbearable. It was excruciating to sit through. I attempted to watch number 4 a couple times but never made it 30 minutes in.
There's really nowhere to go with it.
McGee - 3/18/2014, 8:34 PM
Oh just let it die...

@Johnny Depp

Do It Ben Stiller
GageHarts - 3/18/2014, 8:43 PM
Love this series. I think every film was better than its predecessor.
naterator - 3/18/2014, 8:53 PM
Good. Do we really need a 5th POTC? THE ANSWER IS A RESOUNDING "NO".
Humby - 3/18/2014, 8:55 PM
Pirates 2 and 3, although executing a fun story, really became a silly caricature of the events and characters established in the first film.

The 4th film actually did a much better job of remaining faithful to the spirit of the first film. The biggest problem with it, IMO, was that it still felt too much like a sequel. Barbossa, Teague, and all of the silly references to the previous trilogy should have been left out. It should have been Jack and his crew on their own, new, adventure.

A few minor tweaks and I'd be willing to give Pirates 5 a chance.
JoJo1982 - 3/18/2014, 9:03 PM
I think cause Disney is too busy getting those 3 or 4 slots for marvel movies that's why
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/18/2014, 9:05 PM
Don't need it.
JohnTom88 - 3/18/2014, 9:05 PM
Series need to be ended in odd number. POTC 5 fine, 6 hell no.

ChiliConCarney - 3/18/2014, 9:15 PM
Now back to the good part!

HappyMeal - 3/18/2014, 9:53 PM
Depp's shtick has been worn out. Go away Depp and take your cash with you.

MrBitterman - 3/18/2014, 9:54 PM
Yeah this is getting old. No more Sparrow.
UlisesMX - 3/18/2014, 10:02 PM
Last one was crap and it made 1 billion worldwide so a new sequel is expected...

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Search for More Money.
BlackIceJoe - 3/18/2014, 10:23 PM
I being honest am surprised Disney would not make another one. They are easy money makers for them.

I personally want more pirate films. But not Disney Pirate films. I would love to see the book Pirate Latitudes become a movie. The book was great and I think a movie of it would be great. But it has to be R. Because if it's PG-13 then they will be taking out the great parts of the book.
TheNameIsWayne - 3/18/2014, 10:31 PM
The trilogy was fantastic, especially the first two, which I found to be perfect. I hated the whole Kylopso storyline in the 3rd one, but loved the rest. The fourth was a pile of garbage. Absolutely horrid with a mediocre director. The 5th needs to be more in line with the first 3 films.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/18/2014, 11:09 PM
Stop making these please. They've worn out their welcome.
Spock0Clock - 3/19/2014, 12:44 AM
Don't like Johnny Depp for Dr. Strange?

Why not Jon Hamm?
datNAMEtho - 3/19/2014, 3:26 AM
The first Pirates was fantastic. The second Pirates was a whole load of fun. The third Pirates was okay and the fourth Pirates was meh.

So far, downhill from the first. I hope they got themselves a good story and bring some interesting new things to the whole saga. I'm sure this film will get made, just not as soon as thought.
GodzillaKart - 3/19/2014, 3:52 AM
Jesus...they made a 4?
Timerider84 - 3/19/2014, 4:48 AM
@Godzillafart, where have you been? Under a rock?
Timerider84 - 3/19/2014, 4:53 AM
After the Lone Ranger, Disney is VERY WORRIED. They lost a lot of money on that one. Don't worry, Star Wars will make it back for them, as well as Avengers:AOU. I say get a better writer for part 5, and then do it. Don't end it on 4.
pepe - 3/19/2014, 4:56 AM
Depp... No thanx!!!!!!
Bad actor!!!!!!!
Keep him out of Marvel!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MrCBM56 - 3/19/2014, 5:08 AM
The Lone Ranger was actually really awesome. The train sequence alone is worth seeing.
theowl - 3/19/2014, 5:39 AM
I want Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 !! Joachim Rønning and Espend Sandberg is going to direct it. Finally something huge from Norway.

I am from Norway.. so please make this happen!!
Gamera623 - 3/19/2014, 5:41 AM
I really liked all 4 Pirates movies.
The first one is one of the best movies ever made in terns of fun entertaining action. Its up there with Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

The 2nd, 3rd and 4th werent as good but still kicked ass.

It makes me laugh how everyone is like "No dont do a crappy pirates movie! Use Depp for a crappy Marvel character instead!" LOL!
