Last we /pirates-of-the-caribbean-5-not-yet-greenlit-at-disney/heard, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the series, has not yet been greenlit by Disney. That hasn't stopped producer Jerry Bruckheimer from claiming the sequel will be shooting before year's end. He also claims that Beverly Hills Cop 4 will be up and running by then as well.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was originally set to be released July 10, 2015, in a summer overcrowded with tentpole blockbusters. It was delayed so that directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning could revamp the script by Jeff Nathanson.

According to Jerry Bruckheimer,

"[I hope to] get that going by this fall or end of the year if everything lines up properly."

Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, with Christoph Waltz interested in playing the villainous Captain Brand. Keith Richards may also reprise his role as Jack's father.

As for Beverly Hills Cop 4, the producer closed a deal with Paramount several months ago, with Brett Ratner set to direct the movie and Eddie Murphy returning as Detective Axel Foley. Jerry Bruckheimer reveals that Axel will be spending time in both Los Angeles and Detroit.

"We're going to take Eddie back to Detroit. He's going to be in Beverly Hills... So we're going to have some fun with him."

Apparently a script is completed, with filming scheduled to begin at the end of August or in early September. Director Brett Ratner recently finished Hercules with Dwayne Johnson and will be promoting it up until its July 25 release date.
