Rob Marshall Claiming Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Being Rewritten

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ director Rob Marshall is claiming that the follow-up to the film, one of 2011’s most financially successful, is being rewritten, Slashfilm is reporting. The news comes after the franchise’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, called for rewrites on the fifth film, when ‘On Stranger Tides’ received poor critical reviews. While the fourth sequel in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series was completed even before ‘On Stranger Tides’ hit theaters in May, Bruckheimer said he felt the script wasn’t good enough.

Marshall offered an update on the fifth ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film, saying Terry Rossio is writing the script. “He’s working incredibly hard and he did a draft and rethought it all and started working on it again,” the director added. “You want to make sure you are asking the audience to come back to see an exciting adventure…I know Johnny (Depp) feels the same way, but he would be happy-if it’s the right script-to put that hat and sword back on.”
