The next Pirates of the Caribbean movie will be a reboot, not a sequel, which makes a return for Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow extremely unlikely.

To date, there have been five Pirates of the Caribbean movies - The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest, At World's End, On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell no Tales.

There was speculation that a sixth movie might be treated as a reboot of sorts. Indeed, there was talk of a female-led sequel with Margot Robbie starring, but that never came to fruition.

When asked by ComicBook.com whether a new Pirates movie will come before another Top Gun, franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer replied:

"It's hard to tell. You don't know, you really don't know. You don't know how they come together. You just don't know. Because with Top Gun you have an actor (Tom Cruise) who is iconic and brilliant. And how many movies he does before he does Top Gun, I can't tell you.

"But we're gonna reboot Pirates, so that is easier to put together because you don't have to wait for certain actors."

Bruckheimer's comments suggest the new movie will come with completely new characters, which means no Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swan or Will Turner.

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 script is weird

Craig Mazin, the showrunner of The Last of Us, has written a script for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and revealed he was pleasantly surprised that Disney liked his "weird" take on the story.

"We pitched it and thought there’s no way they’re buying it, it’s too weird," Mazin told the LA Times.

"And they did! And then he wrote a fantastic script and the strike happened and everyone’s waiting around.”
