Disney has hired veteran Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriter Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin to develop a new feature of the popular pirate film franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Elliott and Mazin are tasked to find a direction and story for the project, once again putting a new Pirates of the Caribbean film in the early stages of development. Elliott is an exciting choice having written on the 2003 original, The Curse of the Black Pearl, and subsequent three instalments, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, and On Stranger Tides. Jerry Bruckheimer who oversaw production of all the Pirates movies is also expected to once again be at the helm as producer. For now, it's unclear if Johnny Depp will return as the hard-drinking comedic Jack Sparrow, a favorite of the previous five movies.

The studio had already taken steps to develop a reboot 2018, when it hired Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. But Reese and Wernick ended up exiting the project in early 2019, leaving it on hold since.
