Johnny Depp on deck for 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'

Courtesy HuffPo
The Huffington Post is reporting there will be a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean which Disney is planning to release July 10, 2015 - and yes Johnny Depp will be returning as Captain Jack Sparrow. No word yet on who will be directing the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film, but Jeff Nathanson (Tower Heist, Catch Me If You Can) will be writing its script.

The premise of the movie is still unclear, but Disney the new Pirates along with the March 21, 2014, release of Muppets 2, the revisionist fairy tale Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie on July 2, 2014, and Brad Bird's sci-fi tale starring George Clooney (and penned by Damon Lindelof) on Dec. 19, 2014.

Oh yeah, and with the Avengers sequel due in 2015 as well as a tale from a galaxy far, far away, it would seem Disney has some exciting projects up its mouse sleeves.

Are you excited for a new Pirates movie or do you think the franchise should walk the plank?
