Disney planning Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and 6?

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides recently wrapped filming and is currently in post-production, but it may not be the last time cameras roll on the franchise. According to Hit Fix “Disney has begun quietly telling cast and crew to set aside a major block of time in the very near future so they can shoot “Pirates 5” and “Pirates 6.”

The franchise is no stranger to back-to-back sequels as Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End were shot together and released a year apart, and it looks like Disney are hoping to do the same again. Should On Stranger Tides reach great heights at the box office like the previous films (which it probably will do) Disney would have every incentive to carry on the franchise. Preferably with Johnny Depp returning yet again as Captain Jack.

Director Rob Marshall is currently experiencing his first bit of action on the high seas, and he may decide he wants more just like Gore Verbinski did a few years ago (although he was apparently exhausted by the end of it all). There’s a wealth of stories that can be told with this franchise, and as long as they keep the quality and entertainment high I don’t see why it can’t continue, and it’s not as though Depp is at risk of being typecast.

What do you think about Disney potentially shooting Pirates 5 and 6? Do you want them to continue, or should they have stopped after At World’s End?

    NO, Firstly the third installment to me was a perfect wrap up for the love interests Will & Elizabeth as a whole to there two completions. But Jack Sparrow(Johnny Depp) is the substance to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise,,,plus the great cast of Geoffrey Rush& Kevin R Mcnally… Them three,,to me are all you need to keep as the back to back cast members for all franchised films,,,please do make a 5th & 6th one,,but do not typecast!!

    yes I think they should make 5 and 6..as long as the original actors are interested in doing so.
    To replace Johnny Depp as CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow or Geoffery Rush as Barbossa would be insane! These two men have made the characters their own. I have enjoyed these movies immensely, and have watched them again and again..and am eagerly awaiting # 4!

      That would be insane to replace the actors!!! They are really good at their rolls that they play…

    i say make another 5th and 6th but make sure they have johnney depp in it along with Geoffrey Rush and the actor that plays mr gibbs and penelope cruiz because those four are great together especially johnney depp and penelope cruiz.

    I have liked all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies…I would love to see more adventures, but they need to add Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan (Turner) in it again somehow…What happens with their child (the one at the end of the 3rd movie in the credits)? Stuff like that…Captain Jack, Will Turner and Elizabeth worked really well together…And what is going to happen with Jack’s dolls in the hands of his old jirlfriend?
