The cast and plot are still unknown but we know that Johnny Depp will be returning as Captain Jack Sparrow. We also know that Joachim Rønning is directing the movie and Jerry Bruckheimer will executive produce. Rumor has it that this might be a reboot of the pirates series with a different storyline than any pirates before it so stays tuned for more updates on Pirates Of The Caribbean 6!
The release date of Pirates Of The Caribbean 6:

- Joshamee Gibbs as Kevin McNally
- William “Will” Turner Jr. as Orlando Bloom

The plot of Pirates Of The Caribbean 6:
As previously mentioned, in February 2019, Disney announced that Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had exited Pirates 6. Later in the year, Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott replaced them.
In a December 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Bailey, the now-president of production at Walt Disney Studios, said he wanted to “bring in a new energy and vitality” to the franchise and that Reese and Wernick had been tasked with giving the film series a “kick in the pants.”
With the arrival of Mazin and Elliott in Reese and Wernick’s place, have plans changed? Is Disney looking to go a more traditional route with Pirates 6? The announcement of the Robbie-Hodson project only raises more questions about the future of the franchise.
One could imagine a content strategy wherein Mazin and Elliott put together a more “traditional” Pirates film continuing the story where Dead Men Tell No Tales left off, while Hodson gets the green light to experiment with a more female-driven spinoff aimed at expanding the series breadth and appeal.
