Just a quick update for all rum-lovers out there: Pirates Of The Caribbean 5
is definitely coming, and Jeff Nathanson
will be penning the script for the fifth movie! In case you’re not so familiar with Nathanson’s work, let us right here remind you that this guy is responsible for Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can

(who is definitely set

, Penélope Cruz
or Keira Knightley
will be returning.
But, at the end of this report, let us once again remind you that the Pirates of the Caribbean
franchise has grossed more than $3.5 billion worldwide with the 2011 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
grossing more than $1 billion worldwide. So, there’s still a lot of potential in the whole thing, or what
