Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin to reboot Pirates of the Caribbean

Deadpool's writing team is also on board

Published: 28th October 2019

Disney has hired Pirates of the Caribbean veteran Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin to develop a story for its reboot of the franchise.

Jerry Bruckheimer is expected to produce as he has on the previous five entries in the series. Disney has hired the Deadpool writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick last year to reboot the franchise but the duo is no longer on board.

Elliott teamed with Terry Rossio on the first four films, starting with 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and followed by Dead Man’s ChestAt World’s End, and On Stranger Tides. Jeff Nathanson wrote the script on 2017’s Dead Men Tell No Tales, based on a story by himself and Rossio.

All five films have grossed more than $650 million worldwide, with Dead Man’s Chest and On Stranger Tides both topping the $1 billion mark.
