About a year ago Disney pulled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from the 2015 release calendar so that Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg would have more time to work on Jeff Nathanson’s script, which they apparently wanted to tweak.  A wise move considering how On Stranger Tides turned out (even if its international box office was higher than its predecessors). But now we have an official new release date for the film.  Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (apparently that’s still the official title) will now arrive on July 7th, 2017.

One of the encouraging things about the delay in terms of working on the script is that this new take may harken back to the

pirates-of-the-caribbean-on-stranger-tides-movie-image-johnny-depp-01-600x399superior 2003 original film in the sense that it will focus mainly pirate action.  A few weeks ago producer Jerry Bruckheimer filled us in a bit during a Deliver us From Evil press day:

Will there be any demonic monsters in Pirates 5?

BRUCKHEIMER:  No, no. I think we’re back to more of a straight pirates movie this time.

So, you won’t have big Kraken creatures anymore?

BRUCKHEIMER:  Not in the script I read recently.

That seems to counter the plot rumors we were hearing over a year ago, so maybe the work they’ve done on the script has indeed been significant.  At this point we don’t know much concrete about the film except that Johnny Depp will of course be returning as captain Jack Sparrow.
