Disney Delays Fifth “Pirates” Film

The overcrowded Summer of 2015 just got a little bit of breathing room.

Disney Pictures has pushed back the release of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the fifth film in the series, by at least six months.

Originally slated for July 10th 2015, Disney confirms the project won’t make its original release date. A 2016 release is now likely.

Jeff Nathanson has penned the fifth installment, which will be directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg (“Kon-Tiki”).
