‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ Confirms Terry Rossio Is Behind Latest Rewrite

Jerry Bruckheimer Films confirms Terry Rossio will rewrite Pirates of the Caribbean 5 In May, we reported that screenwriter Terry Rossio's script was completed for Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 screenplay will be rewritten, although it wasn't known if the producer was seeking a new writer, or if he was sticking with Terry Rossio. A representative from Jerry Bruckheimer Films reached out to us today, clarifying that Terry Rossio is in fact the sole screenwriter on Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

First and foremost, Terry Rossio is absolutely, positively and definitively, the screenwriter of Pirates 5. As I'm sure you know, the development and writing of screenplays are a constantly evolving creative process. The "we" in Mr. Bruckheimer's comments that you quoted was meant to be inclusive of Mr. Rossio."

Jerry Bruckheimer himself also took to his Twitter account just minutes ago to confirm the news.

"#PiratesoftheCaribbean screenwriter Terry Rossio doing his usual phenomenal work on P5"

We still don't know when production may start on Pirates of the Caribbean 5, although actor Kevin McNally told us exclusively that they are aiming for a summer 2012 production start.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales comes to theaters July 7th, 2017.

      @Ashley-Davis Are you referring to negative comments regarding the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, or are you referring to positive comments regarding the Pirates of the Caribbean movies?

        i hate to see these stupid comments from people. if you see how many people go to watch the mocies on opening day and continue to buy the movies, then obviously they are good. Personally, i love the movies and am looking forward to the next one.

          Doesn't really phase me, nor affect my non-hype for this.

            I wonder if the Director Gore Verbinski would return to direct Pirates of the Caribbean 5 ?

              As long as Rob Marshall doesn't return, I'll be willing to try again...I guess.

                  More like McNally speculated on a summer 2012 production start, even admitting he'd be the last person to know anything about it.

                  As for a fifth film, I'm up for it. I thought OST was better than AWE, but was a bit dialogue heavy. There's 36 minutes of walking from after the QAR docks at the cove to when they arrive at the fountain, and the spanish camp needed more of a push to it. Not to mention the spaniard whom was an intriguing character who got gypped. But a fifth film would be better than another summer romcom.

                    I wonder what it was about the script, that made it bad enough that they had to re-write it ?

                      @luc-eccles-biron i agree that Depp always had a good eye when it came to choosing his projects but he also says in interview that he loves playing the popular pirate and of course then money will definitely keep me on board :D

                              Yes, i remember that part where the soldier lays down his weapon to chase after Jack Sparrow. But, i guess he still could of held on to it while chasing after him in that scene. I think that at one point when they were first starting to write the script for Pirates 4, the bad guys (Blackbeards Queen Annes Revenge Crew), meaning the Zombie Pirates, where originally going to be alot scarier then they turned out to be in the movie, and there was going to be something in the movie that was going to happen to them at one point in the movie, if they had not changed Pirates 4's script a little bit when they did. I think the Zombie Pirates crew that are with Blackbeard in the Queen Anne's Revenge in Pirates 4, almost had a scene in the movie if they had not changed the script a little bit. I think that what would of happened to them at one point in the movie, was that the Queen Anne's Revenge Zombie Pirate crew were going to appear to decompose or disintegrate, where Special Effects (CGI) would be required, and that would be something like what we would usually expect to see in the recent Mummy and the Mummy Returns movies, and that would of been too scary for a Disney movie apparently.

                                  @themoviefanatic well several of the major action scenes while fun to watch irritated me, like when the soldiers lays his weapons down toward the beginning in the palace...did not make sense. And there were a lot of those types of moments where, like in horror movies when they run upstairs instead of our the fron tdoor your just thinking WHY??WHY??? I still loved the movie but as usual the bad guys were just extrordinaraliy moronic.

                                  But forever moment of rediculousness there were also gret scenes...the like when Jack climbes the tree he is tied too.

                                      So you think it would be better if they were in IMAX 2D, instead of in 3D or IMAX 3D, considering the fact that you said that the 3D didn't do anything for you ?
