Jerry Bruckheimer says sixth Pirates Of The Caribbean and Bad Boy 3 likely to happen

September 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments

If there’s one franchise that baffles us every time it gets a new instalment, it’s this one.

Pirates Of The Caribbean started off really well with the first movie but really never picked up after that and after the lacklustre fifth movie this summer we thought (not for the first time) that the franchise may have finally come to an end.

However, it seems not…

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer seems keen to get Captain Jack on the screen once again after DEad Men Tell No Tales took $791 million: “I mean, you’re talking about the fifth in the series in a down market, and the American dollar is so strong that we’re getting less returns from foreign.

“This movie would’ve (taken) a billion dollars had it been back in the same financial (world as the last film), but we lost 27% of our money just by the conversion rate. But god it’s at what, $790M now? It’s amazing.

“Hopefully (Pirates 5 is) very successful on DVD as the other ones have been. Then hopefully we’ll sit down and see where we go.”

So get ready because Pirates Six looks likely to happen.

And still no Serenity 2. No, we can’t let it go.

And speaking of franchises that we didn’t think we’d see continue, Bruckheimer says that, despite recently dropping of the radar, Bad Boys 3 is still hopefully happening in the future: “Well, we’ve been developing it for I don’t know how many years now and we had a period of time where it got pretty close and then it drifted away a little bit and hopefully it will drift back again. We have a new writer on it who’s working on it right now, so that gives me encouragement.” 

So there you have it… more Pirates and Bad Boys on the way.


Let us know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
