Variety have revealed that the guy behind Catch Me If You Can will be penning the script for the upcoming fifth chapter in the Captain Jack Sparrow movie franchise. Hit the jump for more.

Ready? Alright then, here it is. If you are a fan of the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, then you'll be really excited with this news (if you're a REAL fan then you know the franchise died in the third movie). Variety is reporting that the scribe behind Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal (two Steven Spielberg movies), Jeff Nathanson, will be penning the script for the fifth movie in the Disney's Pirates Of The Caribean franchise, which has Johnny Depp set to return to the leading role of Captain Jack Sparrow and Jerry Bruckheimer as the producer. So far, no director is attached to the project, also there's no word if any of the other cast members like Geoffrey Rush, Penélope Cruz or Keira Knightley will be returning and no plot details are known either. So stay tuned on CBM for more on Pirates Of The Caribean 5.

Haven't seen one in cinemas, and plan to continue that tradition.

Oh LEVI, what has this retched industry done to us!?

Hey Jacksparrow...where you at man? Watching Amazing Spider-Man..that's where.
lyingcake - 1/11/2013, 7:33 PM
...I suppose there's still money in it, though it's pretty much beating a dead horse. Ugh

Yes. Please make a fifth movie good. That last one was so unbearably awful (honestly, Penelope Cruz delivered the only dynamic performance). But I have to agree with the author of this article, At World's End was numbingly bland.
GreenHalJordan - 1/11/2013, 7:40 PM
I was being serious! I loved the Hellboy movies!
95 - 1/11/2013, 7:41 PM
I regret every second I spent watching On Stranger Tides. I'm not even kidding. I saw it on HBO. So glad I didn't see it in theaters.
GreenHalJordan - 1/11/2013, 7:42 PM
I was disappointed with On Stranger Tides. I thought it could be different AND entertaining. Sadly, I was wrong.

Loved the first first 3! 4th blew Griffs balls though...hope they get things back on the right course with numero cinco!

When will this madness end!??!
GreenHalJordan - 1/11/2013, 7:56 PM
lol, I get ya LEVI. I was makin sure there werent any either. You see that folks? 2 CBM fans getting along together! Dont see that often! lol
DrainBamage - 1/11/2013, 8:00 PM
Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal? Is Tom Hanks going to be in Pirates 5? ;-)

Joking aside, isn't a Pirates film sort of out of Nathanson's element?
poop23 - 1/11/2013, 8:00 PM
THey just need to make one more like the first, like less fantasy stuff.

The characters though are always fun to see, mainly barbosa and jack, its a shame the films in their entirety have't been going as good
Tony93 - 1/11/2013, 8:09 PM
last one was horrible.. bring back bloom and knightly!!!
Ace006 - 1/11/2013, 8:35 PM
I'm excited for a fifth pirates movie hopefully its better than stanger tides
Kevwebsz - 1/11/2013, 8:38 PM
Am i the only one that wants to see this guy in it?

santoanderson - 1/11/2013, 9:04 PM
The only watchable part of these films is Johnny Depp. Everything else is just scenery to support his character. If you're tired of the Captain Jack schtick, you'll probably be bored by a fifth Pirates film. I still like Captain Jack though, and would happily see another movie with him in it.
Berzerker93 - 1/11/2013, 9:24 PM
I loved the first one, but was a little disappointed with the 2nd, and don't remember anything about the 3rd but I heard it was pretty bad. I liked Stranger Tides when I saw it, but I don't really remember anything about that one either. Hopefully this one is a little more memorable.

I also would love to see Jason Isaacs as a villain in a pirates movie. I think he would be a far more intimidating character than Ian McShane was. Blackbeard was a disappointment to me. For somebody who was reputed to be the most feared pirate of all, I found Barbossa, Davy Jones, and even Jack Sparrow's dad more threatening.
ahhmynuts - 1/11/2013, 9:34 PM
"real fan"? ok king of the "real fans"
i didnt know you can only be a real fan if you liked the first three. where is that written
eleven59 - 1/11/2013, 9:39 PM
Seriously!! How can you mess up a movie with freakin Blackbeard as your bad guy!!
NorseGod - 1/12/2013, 12:19 AM
The fourth one was all over the place, Jack was a cartoon of himself, and it was still somehow extremely forgettable for the most part, with no real interest in any of the supporting characters being developed. A fifth movie isn't going to dig them out of the hole they created.
LEEE777 - 1/12/2013, 1:32 AM
Pass on 5, only decent one was the first :p

Still good news for the diehard fans!
PeterParker1991 - 1/12/2013, 8:31 AM
POTC should've stayed a trilogy. Isn't the same w/o Will and Elizabeth
Super12 - 1/12/2013, 9:41 AM
NOOOO!!!! WHY WON'T THEY JUST LET THIS DIE?? The fourth movie was just AWFUL
darkjoker1 - 1/12/2013, 11:44 AM
nooooooooooo just ended the damn jack sparrow movies -_- theres no need for a another pointless movie -__- strange tides was awful.....
Kevwebsz - 1/12/2013, 3:58 PM
@KingEmperor i meant captain hook lol but with jason playing him
Emjeed - 1/12/2013, 4:43 PM
They DID say "On Stranger Tides" was gonna be the beginning of a new trilogy at some point so I'm not surprised. I'm still hoping they Surprise me though. The last one was alright but it had so many parallels with the first one.
dancingmonkey08 - 1/13/2013, 8:15 PM
this is yet another movie that joins the very much used category of meh, this week, along with Jurassic Park 4

Why oh why, (Ok I know they want to make money) do we need another one from both Pirates and Jurassic Park. It would want to be one hell of a plot in both of them


I know what you mean, where the [frick] is Hellboy 3 (preferable before Ron gets any older) and a goddamn Incredibles 2?!! You know, the sequels that could be made to tell an awesome new story, rather than the same bullshit over and over
