It may not be out until 2016...
Coming Soon reports that Walt Disney Pictures has delayed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from its original release date of July 10, 2015. While nothing is official yet, it seems likely the show will be pushed to 2016. This comes one day after the studio moved Marvel Studios' Ant-Man.
The franchise began in 2003 with The Curse of the Black Pearl and has featured Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in every film so far. The most recent film, On Stranger Tides (starring Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Sam Claflin) earned over $1 billion worldwide.
Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) wrote the script for the fifth film, which will be directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki). It will begin production in the fall.
