It has been three years since Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge released. The fifth part in the world acclaimed fantasy series was the last time people got to see their beloved Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) on screen. According to Hollywood, Disney has now confirmed Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 and is slated for a 2021 release. Disney has hired two writers for the direction and story aspect of the film.
Pirates Of The Caribbean 6: Cast
People are excited to catch a glimpse of Captain Jack Sparrow in action on the big screen. But there have been no official announcements regarding the cast of the film. According to rumours, Johnny Deep is very much unlikely to return as the Captain once again. He’s drunk and disorderly conduct is something that Disney has not taken lightly.
However, owing to the massive love and backing by the fans towards the actor, Disney will carefully need to rethink their casting strategy. In addition to all this, Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swann and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner may be limited to as short as just cameos. Davy Jones (initially portrayed by Bill Nighy), is expected to make a return. Other possible cast members returning include:
- Brenton Thwaites as Henry Turner
- Kaya Scodelario as Carina Barbossa
- Kevin Mcnally as Joshamee Gibbs
Pirates Of The Caribbean 6: Plot
As per The Hollywood Reporter, Disney plans on rebooting the second film in the franchise “Dead Man’s Chest”. The 2nd film in the franchise dominated the box office doing a business of a whooping 106 crores USD. According to writers Ted Elliott and Craig Mazin, the development of the next part in the franchise is in the works.
A female lead is the talk of the town among the fans. The nightmare witnessed by Will Turner is something that the story plans to revolve around with Davy Jones returning and is hell-bent on taking revenge. The addition of new characters is very much possible.
Pirates Of The Caribbean 6: Release Date
Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 will be released in 2021 as per Disney. However, there has been no official announcement regarding the exact day and date of release. But in the wake of chaos caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a delay is more likely.
Whether Disney retains or snubs Johnny Deep as the lead will be the crucial factor to wait and watch. There has been no official trailers or teasers released by Disney studio. It seems that waiting is on the cards for the fans.
