Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has had its planned release date pushed back by a year, according to reports.
The Johnny Depp-centric swashbuckling film was originally due for release on July 10, 2015, though Walt Disney Pictures have since hinted the adventure flick won’t meet its planned schedules and the film would need to be delayed.
Though nothing has been confirmed, studio sources say a 2016 release is now more likely.
The long-running series is a decade old this year after the first in the franchise, The Curse of the Black Pearl, released way back in 2003.
Since then, Pirates of the Caribbean has, in every film so far, featured Depp in the central role of Captain Jack Sparrow.
The most recent adventure, On Stranger Tides, also featured Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Sam Claflin, while Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have starred in the past.
On Stranger Tides was released in 2011, and broke several box office records, and currently stands as the 12th highest-grossing film of all time worldwide.
It would seem then that there’s certainly enough scope for a fifth film in the series, though fans will likely have to wait a little while longer before seeing Jonny Depp don that red bandana of his.

Showing a rare sign of self-awareness, Johnny Depp on Monday hinted to BBC he’s thinking about retiring from acting relatively soon.
“When you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year, for example, and you realize that you’ve said written words more than you’ve actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking about that as an insane option for a human being,” Depp said while promoting his latest movie, The Lone Ranger.
Depp, who spoke of similar things to Rolling Stone in June, continued:
Are there quieter things I wouldn’t mind doing? Yeah, I wouldn’t mind that. I wouldn’t say that I’m dropping out any second, but I would say it’s probably not too far away.
Sure; but with at least three movies in the pipeline – the Rob Marshall musical Into the Woods (fine) and sequels to Pirates of the Caribbean (why?) and Alice in Wonderland (seriously, why?) – “probably not too far away” should be taken lightly.
So should that thing I just said about self-awareness, come to think of it.
In the most least surprising news of the week, Johnny Depp is pushing through a sequel to Disney’s $1 billion worldwide grossing Alice In Wonderland, just two weeks after his latest movie The Lone Ranger flopped on its arse.
Variety says Depp’s production company Infinitum Nihil has moved from Warner Bros to Disney and are now putting the wheels in motion on Through The Looking Glass that would see Depp reprise his role as the Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s 2010 live-action/CGI adaptation, with original screenwriter Linda Woolverton again on writing duties.
Although the planned movie shares the same name as Lewis Carroll’s own follow-up to his classic tale about Alice and that fabled rabbit hole… it likely won’t resemble too much of the novel as Burton’s 2010 film was already a sequel of sorts to both Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass.
Alice, the Red Queen, The White Queen and many of the other characters from the original are in Carroll’s follow-up, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the likes of Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway will return for this film, though it seems likely offers will be put out to them.
There’s no word yet on whether Tim Burton would direct. Obviously he’ll get asked to do it, but given his stance on hating sequels (the only one he ever made was Batman Returns and he did his best to make it tonally and artistically different from his original), we shouldn’t hold our breath that he’ll do it. Though if there was a movie he may return to, it could be Wonderland, given that Disney will throw obscene amounts of money at him to make it.
There was of course rumours back in May that The Muppets director James Bobin was courting the sequel and that could prove significant.
Once again then, when the tough gets going, Depp goes back to what works. The funny thing is, that was kind of what The Lone Ranger was supposed to be. A re-teaming at Disney with the talented director (Gore Verbinski) and writers and producers behind the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, along with a Jack Sparrow inspired take on Tonto, how could it fail?
After two weeks of trying to figure that out, Disney have decided to blame the age old Western property, one that was never that huge to begin with, and are keen to make their money back from another Depp cash-cow. A fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie is set for 2015 and if they get their way, a second Alice In Wonderland movie may not be too far behind.
Depp’s currently filming The Dark Knight trilogy’s awesome cinematographer Wally Pfister’s debut film Transcendence, before moving on to the recently announced Mortdecai, a re-teaming with his Secret Window writer David Koepp at Lionsgate. He then looks likely to give his vocals a run for their money in Rob Marshall’s musical Into The Woods before he goes back to the money making cash-cows of Jack Sparrow, and then seemingly Mad Hatter.
Although Tonto may not ride again on our big screens, it’s clear Sparrow will sail the seven seas and the Mad Hatter will have more tea parties to host.

Who would have thought Johnny Depp was such a slave to fashion?
The eccentric actor was spotted browsing the newest wares at renowned tradeshow PROJECT Las Vegas on Wednesday, catching fellow fashion fans by surprise.
“I thought it was odd he was there,” eyewitness Michele Bedrick with Silver Jeans Co. told Celebuzz exclusively. “He definitely seemed out of place. I wasn’t sure quite why he was there or if he had a connection to PROJECT, but I’m sure he could be making personal orders.”
As fans certainly know, Depp has a personal style all his own. In fact, the always off-beat dresser was snapped in Vegas wearing brown high-top sneakers, tucked-in baggy jeans and, of course, his signature rocker rings, beaded bracelets and necklaces. Also on display: a floppy hat and blue-tinted sunglasses.
So how did The Lone Ranger star spend his time at the event?
“He was just wandering and cruising up and down the aisles, popping in and out of the tradeshow booths,” Bedrick said. “He was looking at all the products and asking questions.”
But in true Depp fashion, the shy superstar wasn’t looking to attract any attention.
“He seemed like he was trying to keep himself low-key,” Bedrick said. “There were no crowds around him. He was totally under the radar.”
