If fifth “Pirates” movie happens, who would direct?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: You just can’t keep a good pirate down.

Though Disney’s fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film didn’t set box office records in the States (earning $166 million to date), the film has made more than enough on the international market (a whopping $472M so far) to justify talk of setting sail on a fifth adventure.

The future of the franchise hangs on Johnny Depp, who would be paid handsomely for his involvement but might not want to “sell out” for yet another Capt. Jack Sparrow paycheck. However, if Disney can lure some of the directors that are being bandied about, a fifth “Pirates” movie could boats some potential.

CinemaBlend is saying that Disney once wanted Tim Burton for “On Stranger Tides,” and could try to lure him for part five if it happens. Other names mentioned are “Tides” director Rob Marshall, Sam Raimi, and Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum”).

Intriguing names, but I’d still rather see Depp go in a totally different direction and leave the “Pirates” franchise in the dust. What about you? Do you have “Pirates” fatigue? Or will you be on board for a fifth movie if it happens?
