Pirates of the Caribbean 5 & 6 to be filmed back to back

0

As many remember, after the snowballing success of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, the second and third movies were filmed back to back to save time and money, while also preventing us from needing to wait so long to finish the journey we were swept up in. With Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides still half a year away from its release, it’s already being rumored that the fifth and sixth movies will follow the pattern:

“Disney has begun quietly telling cast and crew to set aside a major block of time in the very near future so they can shoot ‘Pirates 5‘ and ‘Pirates 6.’Â And, yes, once again, they will be shooting them back-to-back as one giant film, and then they’ll release them as two films.”

I’m actually not too worried about the continuation of the Pirates series without director Gore Verbinski because I’ve been a huge fan of Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio’s writing work ever since Aladdin. Not to mention the new director, Rob Marshall, has plenty of his own hits from the past.
